    Unanswered: Bash and SQL

    Hi all:

    I'm using Cygwin and was wondering if someone could tell me the command for executing the Linux x-windows? Cygwin is on my laptop and I have Debian on a Linux server, therefore I wish to open up the Linux on server via laptop?

    p.s. a silly question, therefore I'm not sure anyone will be able to answer! But here goes: I was once working with a programmer who was working on an Oracle database via a VPN. He was using a scripting shell to perform SQL commands to the database i.e. creating tables/users etc. Is this common and is it easy to set-up?

    Cheers

    Olly

    Cool


    1) You need cygwin/X.

    2) Yes it's normal to use scripts to perform DDL/DML on a database and to set-up just write the scripts!

    Found it, its: X -broadcast -fullscreen

    BUT you need to enable the XDM to listen for the broadcasts.

    Thanks for help
