You could manipulate the CLOB and BLOB with the DBMS_LOB api. There are several procedures and functions in this package .

You could run the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/dbmslob.sql and $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/prvtlob.plb to create this package .

Chapter - 6 of the ORacle Application Developers Guide (ORacle8) talks in detail about
this.

It's pretty elaborate and gives you examples of select, update, appending and creating an
empty lob and so on.

Please read the documentation and if you still need more details after that, I'll try and help you.

If you do not have access to Oracle documentation - post your email address and I will send that particular information.

Please check it out.

Thanks.
