I'm sorry, I don't follow your reasoning here. You interject on a "list the strings" that it is too elaborate. Then you follow it up with a heck of a lot of speculation. Now you seem to agree that it is an option?

And can you please define "informed DBA"? Or is that some crap you're just throwing in?

Sorry, but I don't give courses in basic Unix for free. Try fishing somewhere else.
