Does anyone know where I can find a listing and usage reference for the built-in pl/sql functions (such as SUBSTR, etc.)? The Oracle PL/SQL manual merely states that there are standard functions included, such as ABS, but doesn't provide a reference. And Oracle doesn't seem to document them in their package docs, giving this reason:

"The DBMS_STANDARD, STANDARD, and PLITBLM packages contain subprograms to help implement basic language features. Oracle does not recommend that the subprograms be directly called. For this reason, these three supplied packages are not documented in this book. "

I must be just missing something.
