Second code example

As a much better approach it is written: DECLARE my_birthdate DATE := TO_DATE ('09-SEP-58', 'DD-MON-RR'); Still this code is relying on the external setting of NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE. The code should thus be: DECLARE my_birthdate DATE := TO_DATE ('09-SEP-58', 'DD-MON-RR', 'NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE=''AMERICAN''')
