I have never joined an Oracle forum before so hello.
I have just spent the last 9 years of my life working for Oracle Consulting UK. I am now contracting in the Cayman Islands.
I spent a lot of time writing a shell script and wondered if you'd like to see it. it really can save you a lot of time and is a nice cockpit to navigate around in.
works great for no database, core, or 11i (eBus)
tell me what you think:
it only runs on unix (ksh) or bash with a very simple documented mod. I even coded it around pdksh's bugs (rightmost pipe not in current process).
