Count number of rows in sys_refcursor

I want to print the number of rows gathered in sys_refcursor variable STATS.

set serveroutput on BUFFER 100000000
  P_param1_1 VARCHAR2(200);
  P_param1_2 VARCHAR2(200);
  STATS sys_refcursor;
  P_param1_1 := 'ABC';
  P_param1_2 := 'DEF';

    P_param1 => P_param1_1,

You have to open the cursor and loop through it.  There is no cursor.count type property.

when refcursor has a cursor.count property then why dosen't sys_refcursor have the same?

Cursors do not have a count property no matter what type they are.  If you have documentation that shows this, I would love to take a look at it.

There is a ROWCOUNT inside pl/sql that shows affected rows after some DML have been processed.

You cannot get a count from a cursor until you have opened it and processed all the rows.  This is typically done with a loop counter that is incremented as you loop through the cursor.
