Get calling instance information in external procedure

Hi,

I have a question about how to retrieve the information of the calling
instance, such as instance name, in an external C procedure.

Thank you,

Why not just pass this information in?

How? As part of the parameter list to the "external" procedure where
the external procedure in question is the official Oracle method for
linking external procedures to the database (version 8.1+). See the
DBA Administration and OraNet manuals.
