Want to know your Oracle character set?

I did today, but couldn't remember how to do it. All of the documentation refers to setting the character set at creation. I couldn't find the spot which showed you how to find out what it was exactly set to.

So here it is. If you are logged in with SYSDBA privilege execute the following query;

SELECT value
FROM sys.props$

It's VALUE$ and not just value.But stil this is a good piece of information.
