What is RESULT keyword in PLSQL?

In Oracle documentation I found a RESULT keyword, but I could not find any documentation about it.


There sre two references to RESULT in the master index, but they don't lead anywhere interesting (code examples for Transparent Gateway).

Certainly, RESULT is not included in the V$RESERVED_WORD view. Furthermore we can use RESULT in our own code without problem:

SQL> declare
  2      result pls_integer;
  3  begin
  4      result := some_number;
  5      dbms_output.put_line(result);
  6      dbms_output.put_line('That''s NumberWang!');
  7  end;
  8  /
That's NumberWang!

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.


tl;dr Forget about it.
