What is wrong here?

[oracle@mac dbs]$ . oraenv sbi
ORACLE_SID = [dat] ? sbi
The Oracle base for ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1 is /u01/app/oracle
[oracle@mac dbs]$ sqlplus / as sysdba

The only clue I see is the ORACLE_BASE reference shows UNIX style slashes, so if UNIX/LINUX, the correct syntax is:

echo $ORACLE_HOME

that is correct
echo %variable% is for windows; $variable for linux

however, in the second line, the oracle sid doesn't look right
is that oraenv a shell script defining it?

For Seth: the oraenv script does not allow for a SID to be passed as a variable, which the author tried to do in the first line.  Thus the value had to be repeated when prompted.
