Uparrow history in sqlplus/rman

Download rlwrap from: http://utopia.knoware.nl/~hlub/uck/rlwrap/
The current version was: rlwrap-0.37.tar.gz (248 k)

Login as root.
Extract the archive and install rlwrap:


[root@rac1 oracle]# tar -zxvf rlwrap-0.37.tar.gz
...
[root@rac1 oracle]# cd rlwrap-0.37
[root@rac1 oracle]#./configure
...
[root@rac1 oracle]#make
...
[root@rac1 oracle]#make install

Now you can switch to oracle user and start sqlplus like this:

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ rlwrap sqlplus / as sysdba

Or create an alias for faster access:

alias sqs='rlwrap sqlplus / as sysdba'
