How about writing sql to generate a sql file that has
  1. connect stmt for givne schema/db
  2. spool and set commands
  3. actual sql stmt to be executed
  4. spool off

repeat until done and then execute that sql via sqlplus /nolog _at_yoursql ? This yoursql file can be generated easily by usign a bit of analytical function (to detect schema/db connectivity change). of course dbms_sql is much more flexible approach as indicated by Dick.
