I'm calling a function from pl/sql, but I do not require the result in this case. Is there a cleaner way to call this function without using a dummy variable?
junk := performWork();
Does not work:
performWork(); --PLS-00221: performWork is not a procedure or is undefined EXEC performWork(); --this might work from SQL*Plus, but not from pl/sql SELECT pkg.performWork() FROM DUAL; --PLS-00428: INTO clause is expected in this SELECT statement
