From Oracle FAQ
Oerr is an Oracle utility that extracts error messages with suggested actions from the standard Oracle message files. This utility is very useful as it can extract OS-specific errors that are not in the generic Error Messages and Codes Manual.
oerr for Unix
Oerr is installed with the Oracle Database software and is located in the ORACLE_HOME/bin directory.
$ oerr ora 600 ora-00600: internal error code, arguments: [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s], [%s] *Cause: This is the generic internal error number for Oracle program exceptions. This indicates that a process has encountered an exceptional condition. *Action: Report as a bug - the first argument is the internal error number
oerr for Windows
Oracle doesn't ship an "oerr" utility for Windows platforms. However, a perl script is available to simulate oerr behavior on Windows.
