Add a plus to sqlplus

Oracle default cli, sqlplus, doesn’t support readline, so you can’t navigate thru commands or search in history.
You’ll enable – between the others:

  • the four arrows
  • ^R
  • ESC .
  • CTRL+U and CTRL+Y

Use  one of those two readline wrapper you can really speed up your job:
* rlfe
* rlwrap (apt-get install rlwrap)

After building, run
# rlwrap sqlplus
