get table record count in oracle

want to count records for all the tables in a schema. For example,
SQL> select table_name from user_tables order by table_name;
T1
T2

if your statistics are up to date you can get close approximations by selecting "num_rows" from user_tables

select table_name,num_rows from user_tables;

if you really want to count all of the rows...


select table_name,
to_number(extractvalue(xmltype(dbms_xmlgen.getxml('select count(*) X from '||table_name))
          ,'/ROWSET/ROW/X')) count
from user_tables

note, if you have many large tables this could take a long time.
