PL/SQL stands for Procedural Language/Structured
Query Language. PL/SQL is an extension of the SQL
language. We can say it is a dialect or the superset of the
Structured Query Language specialized for use in the
Oracle database. Because it is Procedural language, it
eliminates many restrictions of the SQL Language. With
the use of SQL user can only manipulate the information
stored into database. User can perform very basic
operations such as selecting the information from some
prefabricated tables, inserting information into those
tables, updating the information stored in table and also
occasionally used to delete information from these tables.
PL/SQL extends SQL by adding control structures found
in the other procedural languages. Procedural constructs
blend seamlessly with Oracle SQL, resulting in a
structured, powerful language. PL/SQL combines the
SQL\u2019s language\u2019s ease of data manipulation and the
procedural language\u2019s ease of programming.
