No Operating System name or version.
No Oracle version to 4 decimal places.
No code formatting (see http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/59964/74940/)
No help. [You're On Your Own (YOYO)!]

LONG has been obsoleted. You should upgrade to 21st century.

Use PL/SQL is LONG is less than 32K.
Otherwise create your program (C, Java or what else).
