Load a file from UNIX into database


I want your help to see if there is a way wherein we can load a set of files which are lying in unix server into my database using sql loader.
Also the person who will be running sql loader does not have access to unix system.
So is there a way i can provide any sql loader script wherein it will connect to unix and uploads the files in database.

After a computer program is loaded and setup, the operating system begins executing the instructions at the program's end point in reverse byte-execution mode.
True or False?
