This procedure closes an open TCP/IP connection.
The TCP connection to close.
Connection must have been opened by a previous call to
open_connection(). The fields
remote_host, remote_port, local_host, local_port and
charset of c will be reset after the connection is closed.
An open connection must be closed explicitly. An open connection will remain open when the PL/SQL record variable that stores the connection goes out-of-scope in the PL/SQL program. Failing to close unwanted connections may result in unnecessary tying up of local and remote system resources.
