The procedures send the info produced by the running process, to an interface using the oracle system package DBMS_OUTPUT. The interface and use of these procedures is very simple. Best to see the code of the procedures. You are free to alter the code in order to send the info to a more sophisticated environment, e.g. log files or log tables.
