3 Accessing Attributes You would be very surprisedmand disappointedmif you were to learn that attributes of structured types couldn't be accessed fairly easily. In fact, they can be accessed quite easily, using more t h a n one syntax notation. (To avoid any confu- 38 Chapter 2 User-Defined Types sion, let me state clearly that access doesn't only mean retrieve. ) The most intuitive notation (for developers using most popular programming languages, at least) is what we call dot notation. To access a structured type attribute using dot notation, you simply specify the name of the "site" (as you learned in Volume I of this book, a site is a place where data can be stored, including columns of rows, SQL variables and host variables, and parameters of routines) whose data type is that structured type, followed by a period (the eponymous "dot"), followed by the name of the attribute.

The discussion of distinct types is relatively short, since the subject was covered in detail in Volume I of this book; in fact, I'm including it only for the sake of completeness. Most of this chapter's space, and energy, is spent on structured types. 1 Distinct Types A distinct type is a data type that is based on a single built-in data type, such as INTEGER, but whose values cannot be directly mixed in operations with that built-in type or with other distinct types based on that built-in type.
