Trying to get SQL or pl/sql syntax, maybe execute immediate.
I want to select sid, serial# from v$session  where program like '%TOAD%'; and pass that into
an execute immediate 'alter system kill session "'| | sid ||',' || serial ||"' immediate;

That's exactly the structure i wanted, but for some reason it does not do the execute immediate.
The pl/sql comes back executed successfully,, but the sessions remain.

check the status of the sessions in v$session, it should say "KILLED",  it may take a while for smon to get around to actually remove them.  Plus, any transactions those sessions were in the middle of have to be rolled back.  

alter system kill session isn't a an immediate death, it's a signal to stop what you're doing and prepare to die.

Ok.  Just needs another immediate at the end :-)
      || ''''; IMMEDIATE
