    Win2K archive log cleanup script?

    I have been tryin to write (what would be an easy script in unix) a script to delete archive logs on a win2k system that are over 3 days old. Does anyone have one written already? You would think that there would be a little better script capabilities for the money you pay for the OS!

    You can do something like this:

    spool c:\delarc.bat
    select 'delete '||name ||' ' from v$archived_log where first_time < sysdate-3;
    spool off

    schedule aaaa.sql to run every night

    then schedule the delarc.bat file to run every night after aaaa.sql

    Please test this before inplementing it.

        to_char(sysdate, 'YYYYDDMM')||'.log'
        from v$archived_log where first_time < sysdate-3;
    spool off
    Great idea! Here is some logging that you can add.
