RE: Somewhat Perplexed - Very Sheepish - Totally Ignorant:SQPLUS after 10.2.0.4 Upgrade

David,

What happens if you do:
SQL>  !sh

(or bash, or ksh, or whatever your preferred shell is?)

Thanks, but the directory has both files and directories.  But I just don't get 
a list.  So I decided to see if other commands which should return output might 
work.  I tried the cat command.  SQL> !cat arch.txt     Guess what, no output.  
Simply came back to a prompt.

Sorry, I was wrong: the directory in which you run the command needs to be 
empty (no files and no directories).
