parameter 'string' may benefit from use of the NOCOPY compiler hint
Cause: The mode of the specified parameter was IN OUT or OUT. Use of the NOCOPY compiler hint may speed up calls to this subprogram.
Action: Change the mode of the parameter to explicitly use the NOCOPY compiler hint. For example, if your subprogram declaration is: PROCEDURE proc(p1 IN OUT CLOB); you can change it to: PROCEDURE proc(p1 IN OUT NOCOPY clob); to get the benefit of the NOCOPY hint. For member procedures or functions in object types, you may have to explicitly declare the SELF parameter as illustrated in the following: MEMBER PROCEDURE proc(SELF IN OUT NOCOPY MY_TYPE);
