Using DBMS_STATS to generate statistics in Oracle 10g

I need to know the best way to generate statistics within an Oracle 10g database. I read that using dbms_stats is better than using compute command.

I need to know the best way to generate statistics within a database (Oracle 10g 10.1.0.5). I read that using DBMS_STATS is better than using compute command. So, I need the exact syntax to do it. Thanks.
If you are using Oracle 9i or 10g, then DBMS_STATS is the only way to go to generate optimizer statistics. You can generate statistics for your entire database with the following in SQL*Plus:
exec dbms_stats.gather_database_stats(estimate_percent=>
DBMS_STATS.AUTO_SAMPLE_SIZE);
There are other gather programs as well. They are all documented here.
