    utl_file_dir parameter

    hi,

    what is the function of utl_file_dir parameter in oracle 10g. Does this parameter related to smtp_out_server parameter for sending mails from database.

    thanks,

    utl_file_dir string /tmp, /usr/tmp

    It's pretty much the temp dir and i'm not sure (i personaly don't think) if it has anything to do with the smtp parameter.

    Ora10g?
    utl_file_dir is deprecated, still there for backward compatibility - use Create Directory instead.

    thanks,
    and no it has nothing to do with the sending emails

    a 2 min search in the documentation would have proved this of course
