Hello Experts,

I'm trying to learn more Oracle my investigating the information found in the "DBA" views and "V$" views.  Using "DBA_COL_COMMENTS" view I can get the table_name, the column name, and a comment about the column -- for "DBA" views.  Is there any way I can obtain this information for "V$" views?

Thanks for your help/time.

select owner, view_name
from dba_views
where view_name like 'V%';
You will notice that they mostly start with v_$.  The v$ are synonyms.
