Hi List, this is a totally theoretical question:can anyone please point me to the difference between sqlplus /prelim and oradebug direct_access? Until Miladins blog  I thought they would be the same, but he showed they are not.
So what are they really?(Just my guess: oradebug direct_access is really direct access to SGA, but what is /prelim???)
thank you for all your hints, Martin  http://oraclue.com/2009/07/22/accessing-fixed-tables-with-direct-access/ -- http://www.freelists.org/webpage/oracle-l
