For those of us with "fat fingers" this would be a blessing.

I can not tell you how many times I fail to simply type v$istnance,
v$instnace, v$instance!
And often...and I mean often, I will run this little select in a spool
and to eye-ball that I'm in the right place before rolling out some

And about those debug sessions with your developers when you might
select from dba_tab_privs, dba_sys_privs, and dba_role_privs, over, and
over again to verify grants and privs...

To bad it is only for Linux.

Agree. I use rlwrap abilities to edit command line only for one-liners.
For the others I use vim.

What I like in rlwrap is it's ability for word completion. I.e. I
created sql.dict file with sql keywords and words like dba_role_privs,
etc. and run 'rlwrap -f sql.dict sqlplus'. After that, I type 'dba_ro'
and press <tab> to complete it to dba_role_privs (the same way as in my
vim editor).
