Being a C programmer, I am accustomed to the 'printf' statement having 2 different purposes:

What about the DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE utility? Is is used only to display stuff from SQL*PLUS, and therefore limited to interactive sessions?

OR

DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE is really flexible (like 'printf') and it can be use, for instance to return some value from a stored procedure to a remote Java client?
