Inserting LONG RAW data

I have a column LONG RAW in a table and I need to insert data in to this table. How can I do that? (I'm using SQL and Oracle 8i on Windows.)

If you stay with long raw, you can enter data only via C or VB or some other programming language that updates the data into the Oracle column.

However if you're using 8i, try converting the long raw column to a BLOB using the TO_LOB function, and then insert the data using the DBMS_LOB package into the BLOB column.

This only involves Oracle software inside Oracle database without any external programming languages.
