This is not really related to Oracle, but rather to Unix - so please bear with me. I am using Linux and new to Unix. I would like to find the owner of a file or directory. I tried
stat [Option] filename
, but unfortunately -u for option does not work... any advise?? Thanks.

Thanks. But that will display everything. In that case, I would have to extract the value in the owner column. Is it possible to get only the owner id with a single command??

alterntively you could use "awk", but in either case you might be force to RTFM or in this case the man pages; unless you insist upon being spoon fed a total solution.

Thanks to all of you.. I was just wondering if there is really a simple command to extract the file's owner.. I'm new to Unix and hence don't know if such command at all exists... I'll take it from here.. thanks again.
