CREATE PACKAGE v10
CREATE PACKAGE -- define a new package specification.

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE will either create a new package specification, or replace an existing specification.
If a schema name is included, then the package is created in the specified schema. Otherwise it is created in the current schema. The name of the new package must not match any existing package in the same schema unless the intent is to update the definition of an existing package, in which case use
CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE.
