    examples for quick usage

    Mishra gives an Oracle DBA a concise guide to version 10g, the latest Oracle database. The blurb on the back cover refers to a plethora of options with these utilities. Thumbing through the book, you can certainly see this. And who can remember all those, or want to? Hence the reason for the book. The notation is BNF and should be familiar to any unix user. But also very useful in the book are the examples given of common usage of most utilities, with typical results also shown. Sometimes, the quickest way to grasp a usage.
