Scoping-naming conventions, PL-SQL Programming

Scoping

Within the similar scope, all the declared identifiers should be unique. So, even if their datatypes differ, the variables and parameters cannot share the similar name. For illustration, two of the declarations below are illegal:

DECLARE
valid_id BOOLEAN;
valid_id VARCHAR2(5); -- illegal duplicate identifier
FUNCTION bonus (valid_id IN INTEGER) RETURN REAL IS...          -- illegal triplicate identifier
