Re: Why use Pro*C for spooling result sets to flat files when you can do the same thing in SQL*Plus?

Linesize only sets the length of one line of output in SQL*Plus. If the value is too long for one line, the output is wrapped onto the next line. It has no influence on the actual amount of bytes retrieved or displayed. The SQL*Plus Users Guide and Reference is quite helpful here ;)
