Hi,

Can we use pragma restrict_references option in function directly rather than in a package spec? IF yes, how? I was going through the forum. All i could see is that it is being defined in the pack spec.!!! Can this directive be used with the procedure as well?

Oracle answered this one for me:
SQL> CREATE FUNCTION mhe_restrict
  2  Return NUMBER
  3  Is
  4    PRAGMA RESTRICT_REFERENCES(mhe_restrict, 'WNDS');
  5  Begin
  6    Return 0;
  7  End;
  8  /

Warning: Function created with compilation errors.

SQL> sho err
Errors for FUNCTION MHE_RESTRICT:

pragma restrict_references in a function is meaningless as you gave the name of the function in the statement.
This is why it is given outside function in the specification as it is part of its specification: your declare that a function as some purity qualities.

Btw, this instruction is useless since 8i (in almost cases).

You don't specify pragma in stand-alone function.
