I have come across the following in the Oracle Certified Professional DBA Certiication Exam Guide Chapter: Physical Recovery Without Archiving) --

'If the DBA was in a pinch and none of the other options were available, such as in the situation where the instance was shut down, the DBA may look in the control file to determine the archiving status of the database as well.'

The author does not go into details of how this can be
accomplished and so I was wondering if anyone could explain how this is possible given the fact that the control file is in binary format.

You can use the STINGS command to see what's in the controlfile

You should mention that STRINGS is only avaible on UNIX-OS's and not on NT
