Go ahead and spool some output, just to be sure that you know how. If you are running Oracle, you can complete this exercise, and if not, you can see what would happen by reading through the commands, and looking at the results. Start Oracle Shared Server, connect to your database, and issue the following series of commands:
SPOOL output
SELECT owner, table_name
FROM all_tables
ORDER BY owner, table_name;

You should find the results in a file named output .log in your current working directory.
The .log extension will be used because it is the default and you did not specify anything else.
