1. when reading the syntax of a command, when it says host-variable it means host variable,
when it says n it means a numeric literal.
when it does not stipulate that a host variable can be used (it is not stipulated when host-variable is not contained in the syntax for that command), (i love it when i can find a legal use of a double negative!)
then a host variable cannot be used.
2. why would you want the number of rows to be fetched to be dynamic?
