    are you looking for unused space below hwm?

    If yes...
    ... get total allocation for target segment - sum(bytes) from dba_extents
    ... calculate optimal allocation for target segment - assuming object was recently analyzed... num_rows * avg_row_len from dba_tables
    ... compare both - usually this does the trick with no further analysis.
    ... for fine grain results factor in pct_free/pct_free
