    I remember thinking the same thing... six years ago! You could try the same thing I tried back then, DBI::Shell [cpan.org]?
    • There are error messages (like which line of SQL had a problem) which I get with sqlplus but not through DBI. For me that is a critical feature, since I'm generally not trying to interactively understand Oracle through the command line, but rather I'm trying to debug some SQL that is misbehaving (eg a large hunk of sql refuses to compile).

      Oracle's error messages suck nearly as badly as its command line client, and I see no reason to make them suck any worse than they have to.
