Oracle 7 Server Administrator's Guide

On page 14 of the index there is an entry that looks like it is about the ability to read data that has been changed by an uncommitted transaction, a “dirty read”:
Dirty reads
    done dirt cheap     D-1
Of course there is nothing about dirty reads in appendix page D-1. This appears to be a reference to the song Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap by AC/DC.

Special thanks to Alan Bardsley for contributing this item.

Couldn't find it
I managed to find the Oracle 7 documentation, but not this particular entry:

http://www.oracle-doku.de/oracle_7_documentation/DOC...

Will dig up some old hard copies and check too.
