|Typical command line to start the client
connect to scott
This is the "instance" - a unix user account. The super user who
owns all the files and processes.
scott is a unix account name and the name of the database.
The instance user can issue create database scott
(this takes nearly 3 minutes to complete on my superfast machine.)
The database scott seems to be owned by the unix user scott without
any further action.
The system seems to rely on unix user accounts.
