Syntax for checking the _TRACE_FILES_PUBLIC parameter

Posted on 2006-04-20
Last Modified: 2013-12-11
From what I understand this is a hidden parameter. When I type show parameter in SQL I don't see it in the list of parameters. What is the syntax for checking to see what the value is for _TRACE_FILES_PUBLIC parameter?

    select a.ksppinm name, b.ksppstvl value, b.ksppstdf isdefault,
           decode(a.ksppity, 1, 'boolean', 2, 'string', 3, 'number', 4, 'file',
                a.ksppity) type,
           a.ksppdesc description
    from   sys.x$ksppi a, sys.x$ksppcv b
    where  a.indx = b.indx
      and  a.ksppinm like '%_trace_file%'
    order  by name
