VI is an editor used by UNIX users. If on MS Windows, you'd use NOTEPAD.

In other words: any (free) editor is a free tool for debugging.

True, but is far from being an Open Source product.

So you do have TOAD, but don't know how to use it? That's another story. Perhaps you should learn a little bit more about TOAD's Procedure Editor and its debugging features.

BTW, you CAN do that in notepad (but is painful).

i do know how to use toad, what i am doing is,

debug - set parameters - i give parameters, select the
checkbox output OUT args....

then ok, then i press F8, it shows the following message

"do you want to compile referenced objects with debug
information? This process can take several seconds"

i choose No...i get the following message


ORA-12638- Credential Retrieval Failed.

This is frustating, as I rely on toad to know about the
funtionalities of complex packages

anyone can help me ?

IF I understood you correctly, you keep pressing "No" when TOAD asks you to compile referenced objects with debug information.

So, what happens when you press "Yes" instead?

No, Littlefoot, he very clearly said 'i do know how to use toad', so it can't be that!

Privs acquired via roles do NOT apply within PL/SQL procedures.

What is/are the most likely causes of ORA-04043 error?


P.S.
Google is your friend but only if you actually use GOOGLE!
