Help with sqlplus in Oracle.

Hi,

I'm learning sql and my instructor used sql*plus in oracle to explain some
basic sql statements. I downloaded the latest oracle and installed it. I'm
having some problems getting sql plus to work. It seems to have problems
connecting and I have no idea how to connect, I haven't got a preconfigured
database or anything.

Can anybody tell me how to get it working?

Thanks

Sure - before you start, just set up the flazzr (line 3) and tweak the
grobnnitz section of the conflaguration file. This is assuming you're
using the GNORF operating system. Otherwise, who knows what fits your
environment.

Seriously .... at the same site you downloaded the software
(http://otn.oracle.com) you will find:

Documentation (also through http://docs.oracle.com or
http://tahiti.oracle.com), and
Sample Code.
On the Sample Code pages, you will see a section called Oracle By
Example which includes screen shots on installing and setting up all the
basics. That should help you out. Then grab the documentation, find a
nice fire to sit by & start reading. Start with the SQL Plus reference
manual, then go to the Database Adminstration Guide.

Have fun.

When you start running into difficulties, remember to include the
operating system and the version of Oracle as part of your problem
description. And Fair warning: The cranky old folk in this group
(myself included) tend to give real snarky responses unless you
prove<< you've made a fairly decent effort at trying to resolve the problem yourself.
