Server-Side Paging Using Oracle 8i

Does anyone know how to implement server-side paging using a stored procedure in Oracle 8i?  I've seen this done in MS SQL Server, but we have Oracle here.  I can do paging at the client-level (IIS/ASP), but would like to do it on the server using an SP.

If anyone has the answer, post it with as much detail as possible.

Thanks.

I have seen a bunch of SQL Server paging sprocs that use temp tables and the like and I personally think they are a very bad idea.  If you are going to use sproc paging it is better to pass the pagesize and position you want and just rerun the query to pull out what you need imho.  

Anyways, in Oracle you can use ROWCOUNT to determine your positioning.  So a packaged procedure that does something like Select FIELD1,FIELD2 from YOURTABLE WHERE ROWCOUNT > 10 AND ROWCOUNT < 20 (where the ROWCOUNT parameters are computed dynamically) is what I would try. Good luck.
