9.8.2.3 Opening a Bound Cursor

OPEN bound_cursor [ ( argument_values ) ];

This form of OPEN is used to open a cursor variable whose query was bound to it when it was declared. The cursor cannot be open already. A list of actual argument value expressions must appear if and only if the cursor was declared to take arguments. These values will be substituted in the query. The query plan for a bound cursor is always considered cacheable; there is no equivalent of EXECUTE in this case.

Examples:

OPEN curs2;
OPEN curs3(42);
