I do not understand the question---using "@@@@@@" where???

Any file--including a script--is readable according to how the permissions are set.

Script Variation

Dear pixellany ,

Very recently I have to install ORACLE 9i into my RHEL 4. here in $ORACLE_HOME/bin , I get a lot of scripts Like dbsnmp,oemctl ets.
Now when I open "dbsnmp" using VI editor I get some character Like the following :

^?ELF^A^A^A^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^B^@^C^@^A^@^@^@ 6^E^H4^@^@^@<90>u#^@^@^@^@^@4^@ ^@^G^@(^@^^^@^[^@^F^@^@^@4^@^@^@4<80>^D^H

And again when I open the "oemctl" file using VI editor , I get following :

echo "Usage: $ME start oms "
echo " $ME stop oms <EM Username>/<EM Password>"
echo " $ME status oms <EM Username>/<EM Password>[@<OMS-hostname>]"
echo " $ME ping oms "
echo " $ME enable eventhandler "
echo " $ME disable eventhandler "
echo " $ME export eventhandler <filename> "
echo " $ME import eventhandler <filename> "
echo " $ME dump eventhandler "
echo " $ME import registry <filename> <repUserName>/<repPasswd>@<repAlias> "
echo " $ME export registry <repUserName>/<repPasswd>@<repAlias> "
echo " $ME configure rws "
exit 1
Like this.

Now plz explain me what is the difference between them ?
