I have sql script named do_needful.sql, this does some processing.
I want to pass input parameter for this script (some thing like command line parameters in unix shell script) as below:
sqlplus> @do_needful.sql <inputfile or input parameter>

is this possible?

Regards,
McLan

How to access input parameter in do_needful.sql?
If I want to do some decision making based on the input parameter,
if (command_line_pram_value > 5) then
{
do some thing
}

&1, &2... (like $1, $2... in Unix shell).

SQL*PlusŪ User's Guide and Reference

SQL*Plus does not contain a language it is just a basic line tool.
You have to use PL/SQL for this but what you can do depends on what you want to do. PL/SQL does not interact with client but you can pass and get back values to/from PL/SQL.
