define "list"

is that a list like a "to do list":
to do
1. describe problem
2. provide sample data
3. supply "expected result"
or is it "comma separated list" like this:

I also suggest you provide "sample data" and the "expected result" (that you would expect from the sample), see the to do list above

Personally I would write the procedure to accept only one parameter, a CLOB.

I would pass in an XML document that has ALL the criteria you would ever want/need.

Then it is a very simple process to use XMLTABLE to extract the values inside the procedure then execute the query.

I would also look at having the results returned as XML in a CLOB.
