Oracle sqlplus command line tools does not support command line editing out-of-the-box. But on Linux there's a handy utility that enables command line editing with any command line tool: rlwrap - readline wrapper. Install rlwrap: $ sudo apt-get install rlwrap Create a keywords file .sql.dict (optional, but convenient): false null true access add as asc begin by chec... It would be nice to add the tables names also. Create an alias for sqlplus (put it in .bashrc ): alias sqlplus='rlwrap -f $HOME/.sql.dict sqlplus'

The MIPS CPU is able to run both big-endian and little-endian. So a system built on MIPS can be either big-endian (mips) or little-endian (mipsel). The file command shows the architecture: $ file ls ls: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, MIPS, ... but readelf will tell the endianness: $ readelf -h ls ELF Header: Magic: 7f 45...

You can use the ntfsresize utility on Linux to shrink or expand an NTFS partition (boot, for example, with the DRBL live cd). To shrink an NTFS partition: shrink NTFS (the file system) with ntfsresize. re-create a smaller partition to hold the shrinked file system with FDisk. To expand an NTFS partition: Recreate a partition that's bigger than the previous one. expand NTFS to the full size of the new partition. The following are from excerpts from ntfsresize FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) : ntfsresize help: [tinker:root]:(~)# ntfsresize -h ntfsresize v1.... ntfsresize example session: [tinker:root]:(~)# ntfsresize -s11000M /dev/hd...

Variable Description SET AUTO [COMMIT] {ON | OFF | IMM [EDIATE] | n} Controls when Oracle Database commits pending changes to the database. SET CMDS [EP] {; | c | ON | OFF} Sets the non-alphanumeric character used to separate multiple SQL*Plus commands entered on one line to c. SET CON [CAT] {. | c | ON | OFF} Sets the character you can use to terminate a substitution variable reference if you wish to immediately follow the variable with a character that SQL*Plus would otherwise interpret as a part of the substitution variable name. SET ECHO {ON | OFF} Controls whether the START (@) command lists each command in a script as the command is executed. SET EDITF [ILE] file_name[.ext] Sets the default filename...

Variables set automatically by shell: Variable Description $# Number of command-line arguments. $- Options currently in effect (arguments supplied to sh or to set). $? Exit value of last executed command. $$ Process number of current process. $! Process number of last background command. $0 First word; that is, command name. $n Individual arguments on command line (positional parameters). The Bourne shell allows only nine parameters to be referenced directly (n = 1-9); the Korn shell allows n to be greater than 9 if specified as ${n}. $* All arguments on command line ("$1 $2..."). $@ All arguments on command line, individually quoted ("$1" "$2" ...). Variables set automatically by Korn shell: Variable Description ERRNO Error number of last system call that failed. LINENO Current...

A substitution variable is preceded by one or two ampersands (&). When you run a SQL command with substitution variables, you'll be prompted for the value of each variable. The one ampersand version prompts for a value and use it for the current query. The two ampersands version uses the value for the current query and remembers it. Just like you did a DEFINE myvar 'The Value' , so you won't be prompted again for subsequent queries using the same variable. To enter a literal ampersand, you need to SET ESC on and use the escape character before the ampersand (&). You can also use substitution variables with a script, but you follow the ampersand by a number instead of a name. When you call...
