    I guess there is nothing like user_procedures that you can query on on oracle?

    There is no view on oracle by the name 'user_procedures'.
    I cannot see from user, system or sys login.

    connect as anybody and do select * from user_procedures

    it is a view owned by sys, granted to public which lets you see you own procedures - you do not own the actual view

    So try selecting from it

    Here is what I get.
    SQL> select * from user_procedures;

    select * from user_procedures

    ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

    -D

    SQL> select * from sys.user_procedures;

    select * from sys.user_procedures

    ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

    are you on an older Oracle version - 8i or prior? That view isn't defined on my 8i, is on 9i.

    Try looking at dba_source

    aaahh pesky unsupported versions, ban them all

    user_source would be the better option here though

    then something is up with your database as select * from user_procedures should work

    Code:
    SQL> create user dave identified by dave;
    
    User created.
    
    SQL> grant create session to dave;
    
    Grant succeeded.
    
    SQL> exit
