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'

Linux services startup order in general: kernel runs /sbin/init /sbin/init reads /etc/inittab and runs script defined by this line: si::sysinit:/etc/init.d/rcS switches to runlevel defined by id:3:initdefault: which causes /etc/init.d/rc to be called with the current run level. /etc/init.d/rc calls the scripts under the /etc/rc <current_run_level> .d directory (symbolic links to actual scripts under /etc/init.d/ ) in this order: The KILL scripts first (scripts with name starting with K, i.e., rc?.d/Knn name ): "script_name stop" then, the START scripts (scripts with name starting with S, i.e., rc?.d/Snn name ): "script_name start" Within each group (KILL or START), run scripts from lower priority number (i.e., the nn in the symlink name) to higher priority number. The Upstart init daemon does not use /etc/inittab . Instead, it...

A runlevel is used to group the daemons (services) to start. For the Fedora/Redhat based Linux systems, the primary runlevels are: runlevel 1: Single-User Mode runlevel 2: Multi-User Mode runlevel 3: Multi-User Mode with Networking runlevel 5: X11 (runlevel 3 + X Window System) The typical workstation runs in runlevel 5. Servers without X-server runs in runlevel 3. To determine what runlevel you are using: # /sbin/runlevel To determine what runlevel your system will boot with: # cat /etc/inittab | grep :initdefault: id:5:in... To switch runlevels (replace RUNLEVEL with appropriate number): # /sbin/init RUNLEVEL When you switch runlevel, be sure that you are at a text console so that you don't accidentally kill your session when X-server is killed.
