raw (datatype in Oracle)

The raw datatype is used to store binary data or binary strings.
The maximum size for a raw in a table is 2000 bytes. Within a PL/SQL piece of code, the maximum size is 32767 bytes.
The raw datatype is similar to the varchar2. However, Oracle does not interprete the data stored within a raw when applying character set conversion.
