Useful SQLPlus Commands

The SQLPLUS utility is the Oracle equivalent of iSQL.

It includes a few shortcuts to make life easier:

@FILENAME

This will excecute FILENAME (or FILENAME.SQL)

SHOW ERRORS

This will show the detailed errors for the last command.

L

This lists the last command entered.

Beware that stored procedures or functions cannot include blank lines (as far as i can tell – I got so many errors that I removed them).

Without some of these commands it is as user-friendly as a cornered rat.
