How can I find out about the details of my current database character set?
Your current database character set can be easily deterimined by querying the database as follows:
select property_name,property_value from database_properties where property_name like '%CHARACTERSET%';
If you want to know more about your specific character sets, you'll have to look up that information in the Oracle documentation.
