Code Generation using Oracle SQL*Plus

I mentioned the requirements for code generation by calling stored procedures from sqlplus in a previous post, but plus needs more fine-tuning to create nice source code files:

set serveroutput on format wrapped;

“format wrapped” maintains spaces in the output file.

set feedback off;

suppresses the message “PL/SQL procedure successfully completed” (found here)

set trimspool on;

trims trailing spaces in the spool file

set linesize 200;

sets maximum line length before wrapping to new line (max. 32767)

spool C:\path\to\my\output.txt

sets output file name (= spool file)

exec my_proc();

generate code using dbms_output.put_line() statements

spool off

end of code generation
