Where is the dump of an export located in an Oracle 9i export?

A SearchOracle.com reader asks, "Where is the dump of an export located in an Oracle 9i export?"

Where is the dump of an export located in an Oracle 9i export?
When you run the Oracle export utility, you can specify the dump file name and location with the FILE parameter, similar to the following:

exp userid=system/manager file=/directory/my_dump.dmp ……

If you do not specify the directory for your dump file, Oracle will create the dump file in your current directory. If you omit the FILE parameter, the exp utility will default to creating a dump file called "expdat.dmp."
