Restoring an inadvertently dropped table

I was dropping temporary tables and accidentally dropped a useful table. Now I want to recover that specific table. Is it possible to retrieve that table?

I am working under windows 2000 and my database is Oracle 8. I was dropping temporary tables. During the course of doing this, I dropped a useful table. Now I want to recover that specific table (dropped through the drop command). Is it possible to retrieve that table?

The only way to restore your table is to restore your database from a backup and to recover to a point in time just before you dropped the table. However, you will lose all information since that time.

Oracle 10g makes life easier with the ability to recover a dropped table similar to recovering a file from a Windows Recycle Bin.
