RE: More spfile goodness

No it's when Dan wants to celebrate his 40th birthday so he can fool
everyone into thinking he's younger than he is.  Today is his 40th.

  Whats a catch-42, a catch-22 that's 20 years old?

   Ah, the chicken or the egg...

   Control files are identified by the parameter (spfile/init.ora) file. If
   you kept the parameters in the control file, how would the database know
   which control files to read? And if a control file was lost? How would
   you edit the control file to change the parameter to point to a
   different control file?

   Sounds like a catch-42.

   All this spfile/pfile rigmarole is just an unnecessary
   and unwarranted complication.  But it's great to generate
   revenue out of OCP training...
