Meta Data for Oracle Store Procedures?

I am working with several databases MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle) that possess their own store procedures. In SQL Server, I can use a system store procedure (sp_help) and obtain all the metadata concerning a specific store procedure, such as parameter names, type, length, order, etc. In MySQL, there is a table called proc with like information.

Here is my question: Does Oracle have a system store procedure or table where I can gain metadata information involving a store procedure?

Thanks in advance for reading my post.
