PORT_STRING Function 
                 Return a string that uniquely identifies the version of Oracle

DATA_BLOCK_ADDRESS_BLOCK Function 
                 Get the block number part of a data block address. 

GET_HASH_VALUE Function 
                 Compute a hash value for the given string. 

ANALYZE_PART_OBJECT 
                 Equivalent to ANALYZE TABLE|INDEX [<object_name>.]

EXEC_DDL_STATEMENT Execute the DDL statement in parse_string. 

CURRENT_INSTANCE Function

Examples:

Compile all schema objects for the schema SCOTT:

EXEC DBMS_UTILITY.compile_schema('SCOTT');

To collect stats for the schema SCOTT:

EXEC DBMS_UTILITY.analyze_schema('SCOTT','COMPUTE')

Do not collect stats for either the SYS or SYSTEM schemas.
Stats can be removed with:

CONNECT SYS/password
EXEC DBMS_UTILITY.analyze_schema('SYS','DELETE')

To check if statistics have been deleted from a schema:

SELECT * FROM user_tables WHERE avg_space is not null;
This will return 'no rows selected' when no stats are present.

Analyze_schema() is available in Oracle version 7.3.4 and above, however if you have Oracle 8i or 9 you will obtain faster and better statistics from DBMS_STATS.GATHER_SCHEMA_STATS
