#### Topic: Recursion from text value

Good afternoon!
There was a problem solved on MS. Now I do not know as this artful CTE to shift on CONNECT BY PRIOR
a recursion from text value
If laziness to open, its description:
There is a hierarchy:
Name, the code
data1,01
data2,01.350
data3,01.350.10
data4,01.350.10.10
data5,01.350.10.10.001
data6,01.350.10.10.001.01
It is obvious that "fatherly" subdividing is divided by restriction of points.
Question - how to construct type structure:
Name, the code
data1, data1
data2, data1 / data2
data3, data1 / data2 / data3
data4, data1 / data2 / data3 / data4
data5, data1 / data2 / data3 / data4 / data5
data6, data1 / data2 / data3 / data4 / data5 / data6

It is possible  normal like instead of regexp_like then the index on c can be picked up if it is, but the task all the same the strange.

Thanks!

All thanks, it was possible only while the method dbms_photoshop to try.
