display sql syntax while in sql plus ?
May 8, 2012 6:02 PM
What is in Oracle's sqlplus equivalent of Linux's man or --help ?
When I'm in sqlplus and type help index, I get some commands displayed, but there is no way to get specific sql syntax. For example if I type 'help select' I get:
SP2-0172 No HELP matching this tiopic was found.
Of course, I would like to get all available options for select command.
How can I get info or sql syntax while I'm at sql prompt ?
I have the same question
