    You know, after I get slammed by my fellow DBA's for joking about something and I see questions like this put up makes me go hmmmm.

    So I'll play nice this time even though it pains me greatly.

    Your ORACLE_HOME/bin directory is where the Oracle executables are stored. For an example.. things like your listener executable. You don't want to play with them.

    I hate people like this.. they are not trying to answer the question but to critic. Well in unix... normally $ORACLE_HOME/bin is part of $PATH.. therefore not need to play in $ORACLE_HOME/bin.. just type "oracle" it will refer to $ORACLE_HOME/bin to execute this command.... that's why i'm accidentially ran this command juest because my unix id is "oracle"... hope you really understand the situation and please answer the question if you know...
    Anybody pls help?

    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle is the oracle executable! How do you think Oracle manages to run?

    If you would take the time to read the documentation you wouldn't have to post questions that make you look like you have no clue as to what you're doing.

    Also,if you would read past the first paragraph to my orginal post you would see that I did answer your question.

    enough said on this subject. Have that Oracle kind of day!

    Everybody know $ORACLE_HOME/bin is where oracle executable files stored. If i found some doc on this definately i won't post question here..
    I know in windows $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle.exe is the core engine for oracle but in unix ..we can see all bg process saperately such arch,dbw,etc.. that is why i wonder what "oracle" for...maybe it is startup program tu run all those bg process.

    its the oracle executable which runs everything, you will notice it has the setuid permission set so that everytime you want to run something, it gets run as the oracle user. Play with it at your peril

    It is a documented feature that if you run it you get a ORA-600

    it's also alot of fun in an outsourced data center environemnt where the dba's must report all alert log errors within a specified time frame to meet sla's. In the past in moments or boredom I'd type oracle, oracle, oracle at the command line to light up the alert log and see how long it would take the dba to respond ;-)
    I'm stmontgo and I approve of this message
