12 System Catalog Tables : 12.1 edb_dir

12.1 edb_dir
The edb_dir table contains one row for each alias that points to a directory created with the CREATE DIRECTORY command. A directory is an alias for a pathname that allows a user limited access to the host file system.
You can use a directory to fence a user into a specific directory tree within the file system. For example, the UTL_FILE package offers functions that permit a user to read and write files and directories in the host file system, but only allows access to paths that the database administrator has granted access to via a CREATE DIRECTORY command.
