A Getting Started with Your Documentation

Your Oracle Database documentation set is provided in both HTML and PDF formats on a CD included in your CD Pack. Use this CD to browse the library from the CD or copy files directly to a local system.

The library includes a Web-based search tool that enables you to search for information about a particular product, parameter, file name, procedure, error message, or other area of interest. The search tool also makes it possible to construct a "virtual book" drawn from the complete documentation library, but consisting only of topics and procedures relevant to your needs. The library also includes a comprehensive Master Index, as well as lists of SQL and PL/SQL keywords, initialization parameters, catalog views, and data dictionary views.

Instructions for installing the library and viewing its contents are in three README files at the root level of the documentation CD-ROMs:


The readme.txt file contains UNIX line breaks. If you simply double-click it, it will open in Notepad by default, and Notepad does not recognize UNIX line breaks. Use write.exe or instead.

The contents of the three files are identical; only the format differs.


The Online Documentation Library CD is not shipped with Oracle Database for 64-bit Windows. For information on how to access Oracle Database documentation, see "Oracle Database for 64-bit Windows Documentation".
