Developer question

I'm forwarding this to the list because I don't know an answer off the top of my head and Google isn't being much help due to the nature of the search. Developer wants to know if you can prepare a statement in a string variable like 'execute someproc();' and check the validity of the statement without executing it. (PARSE it only)

I *thought* there was a way in Oracle to parse a statement without executing it but I can't figure it out at the moment.
