Yes there are, for example


This procedure calls the PL/SQL parser to parse the given name that is in the following format,

    a [ . b [. c]] [@dblink ]

where dblink is the name of a database link. Here's the header for the procedure:

       (name  IN VARCHAR2,
        a OUT VARCHAR2,
        b OUT VARCHAR2,
        c OUT VARCHAR2,
        dblink OUT VARCHAR2,
        nextpos OUT BINARY_INTEGER);
