Where to write the imp command?

I have a dump file on my local C drive. I want to import to an Oracle database. Where to write the imp command? Is it on the command prompt or on SQL*Plus?

The import utility is a command line utility just like SQL*Plus or other command line utilites. This document contains all of the information you will need on the imp utility.

As an example, to import the entire contents of your dump file, you can use a command similar to the following:

imp userid=system/manager file=mydump.dmp full=y log=imp.log
