I face the following problem with the UTL_FILE package. There is a limitation of 1023 characters you can write with the PUT, PUTF, PUT_LINE functions. I need to create a file with lines > 1023. In Oracle 8.x there is an overloaded function fopen where you can do this. But I can't switch to Oracle 8.x.

Do you know a workaround to write lines with more than 1023 characters into a file within PL/SQL!
