TYPE type_coll IS TABLE OF type_rec;

END;

/

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY debug_test AS

FUNCTION return_pipe

RETURN type_coll

PIPELINED AS

v_rec type_rec;

v_date DATE;

BEGIN

SELECT SYSDATE INTO v_rec.date_val FROM DUAL;

PIPE ROW (v_rec);

END;

END;

/

select * from table(debug_test.return_pipe);

It works fine. If you try to step into the debugger you will get a probe timeout and
