Some handy settings when running a query from the command line via sqlplus

set echo off
set heading on
set linesize 1024
set pagesize 0
set tab on
set trims on
set wrap off
-- might want to set column formats here
-- e.g.: column foo format A10
spool stats -- dump results to stats.lst
-- SQL query here

spool off

  2. Instead of sqlplus you should try yasql, a much more civilized alternative to sqlplus. Yasql has gnu readline support, more flexible output, and lots more.
