I'd use vi, but the choice of editor is up to you.

There are many ways.
I give you 2.
First one, value returned in the SQL*Plus return code:
myprompt> sqlplus -s / <<EOF
> var nb number
> begin
>   update t set col=col+1;
>   :nb := sql%rowcount;
> end;
> /
> exit :nb
> EOF
myprompt> echo $?
9

Second one, value returned in a shell variable:
myprompt> x=`sqlplus -s / <<EOF
> set serveroutput on
> set feedback off
> begin
>   update t set col=col+1;
>   dbms_output.put_line(sql%rowcount);
> end;
> /
> exit
> EOF`
myprompt> print $x
9

Regards
Michel

watch out for "exit :nb" Unix return code is limited to 1 byte - use dbms_output if necessary or just grep the usual standard output...
