@, @@ and start [SQL*Plus]
SQL> @ url SQL> @ filename SQL> @ filename.extension SQL> @@ url SQL> @@ filename SQL> @@ filename.extension SQL> start url SQL> start filename SQL> start filename.extension
If extension is omitted, SQL*Plus will asume the extension set with set suffix.
@@ is similar to @, but it is usefull when used within a script: it will then search for the called script in the same directory in which the calling script is located.
@, @@ and start can be disabled in the Product user profile.
If @, @@ or start is used, the question mark (?) will be expanded to the value of ORACLE_HOME.
However, if ? is used as the first character in the prompt, it is a shortcut to help.
The start command won't work if the restriction level is set to at least 3:
