Extract filename from a Directory path in plsql

When I was searching for a Oracle API to list the file names from a folder/directory, I found the link
www.chrispoole.co.uk/tips/plsqltip2.htm

I just tried to use the script and provided the test results in this post. I did this because it seems to be a worthy script.


Test Enviroment: 
Test OS: Windows
Test DB: Oracle 10g
Tool USed: SQL Developer

SCRIPT:
SET SERVEROUTPUT ON;
DECLARE
pattern VARCHAR2(1024) := 'C:\tmp\*.*';
ns VARCHAR2(1024);
BEGIN
SYS.DBMS_OUTPUT.ENABLE(1000000);
SYS.DBMS_BACKUP_RESTORE.searchFiles(pattern, ns);
FOR each_file IN (SELECT FNAME_KRBMSFT AS name FROM X$KRBMSFT) LOOP
DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(each_file.name);
END LOOP;
END;
/

Directory


Test Results:



I welcome my blog viewers to rpovide their valuable comments to improve this script
