All this talk about what is is linked to what, and whether the link is dynamic or static is irrelevant; that's just a platform implementation issue.

The fact is that SQL*Plus uses the Oracle Call Interface. Sybrand is 100% correct.

And by the way, executables on *nix don't generally have a .exe suffix. That's a Windoze thing.
