Learn Oracle shell scripting

It's not uncommon to use Linux shell scripts (ksh or bash) scripts to invoke Oracle processes remotely, usually using a crontab (on in Windows with the AT command).

It's easy to embed Oracle commands into a batch shell script and use the shell command language to analyze and/or format the output from Oracle. I also recommend getting the free Oracle Linux command reference poster.
