Get the "real" geometry with ST_ASTEXT?

Hi, we've been trying to identify some line features with duplicate vertices recently (this is ArcGIS 10.2.1 with ST_GEOMETRY on Oracle 11.2), and one obvious way seemed to be to output the geometry as OGC WKT using the ST_GEOMETRY function ST_ASTEXT. I noticed, however, that line features are always output as LINESTRING, i.e. with straight line segments, even though the real geometry (as seen in the edit vertices window in ArcMap) has circular segments as well. Also, my duplicate vertices don't show up in the WKT LINESTRING either


Is there a way of exporting the "real" geometry as text, especially the location of all vertices?


Thanks, Martin


PS We're using Data Reviewer 10.3 right now, but installing that at a customer site otherwise running 10.2.1 is a bit of a hassle...
