I have used dbms_metadata to get the ddl for very large tables and I did'nt
get into any issues , we need to supply required formats though.

Isn't there a bug in DBMS_METADATA that causes 'scripts' of longer than
4,000 (or 2,000 maybe) characters to fail to convert from CLOB to
RAW/CHAR/VARCHAR2. It used to happen only for materialized views but
I've seen it happen with heap tables too - provided they were plenty big
enough that is !

Just a thought or vague remembrance.
