Inserting a BLOB in an Oracle table

I am using a French front end to connect to an Oracle database back end. Everything is working well except for BLOBs (I have images in one of the tables). I can insert, update and delete all other items except BLOBs. Please can you give me the SQL routine to insert a BLOB in an Oracle table?

Data stored in a BLOB datatype is binary data. As such, you will not be able to interact with this data using SQL*Plus, which is text-only. You will have to write routines to insert the binary data into the BLOB column. How you do this depends on your application development platform. This document gives details on inserting BLOBs on a few platforms.
