Sql*plus

SQL*Plus (SQLPLUS) is a command-line program for interacting with databases in Oracle Database. The tool comes bundled with the Oracle database management system and provides an environment to execute SQL queries and scripts. SQL*Plus allows users to write and edit SQL statements, PL/SQL code, and stored procedures. It also enables the generation of reports directly from the database using simple queries combined with customizable report formatting options and calculations within SELECT statements. With this utility, administrators can perform routine tasks such as database schema changes or data updates through batch processing scripts while developers can use it for testing ad-hoc queries before integrating them into application codebases.
