From Oracle FAQ
An anonymous block is an unnamed sequence of actions. Since they are unnamed, anonymous blocks cannot be referenced by other program units.
In contrast to anonymous blocks, stored/ named code blocks include Packages, Procedures, and Functions.
Here are some example anonymous blocks written in PL/SQL:
begin DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line('Hello world!'); end;
declare i number; begin i := 10; end;
