function return cursor

How Do I use a cursor that return of a PL/SQL FUnction, into a SQL Stament? . I have Oracle 8i.
1 Solution
To my knowledge, this isn't possible. I've tried various ways to do it myself without success. Here is a link that confirms my thoughts.

I will note that on 9i, it is possible to create a pipelined function that reads the cursor for you and returns the rows from the cursor, which you can then cast to a table and select from it, but if you are going to go through that, I'm not sure why you wouldn't just have the pipelined function open it's own cursor, doesn't seem much advantage to passing one in.

anyway, unfortunately, I don't believe you can do that.
