user-guide

help

The help command displays help text for all other commands.

config

The file ~/.okclirc is created upon installation with config for okcli.

Things like colour-scheme, prompt-format, log-file location etc. can be updated there.

colours

The syntax_style parameter in the config-file sets the syntax colour scheme, select from the following:

# Syntax coloring style. Possible values (many support the "-dark" suffix):
# manni, igor, xcode, vim, autumn, vs, rrt, native, perldoc, borland, tango, emacs,
# friendly, monokai, paraiso, colorful, murphy, bw, pastie, paraiso, trac, default,
# fruity.

Other style options (eg. the status bar) can also be set in the config-file.

shell

Start a statement with ! to execute it as a shell command.

For example

Oracle-18c oracle@system:hr> ! echo Hello Okcli
Hello Okcli

exec-file

Execute sql statements from a file by passing it as an argument with -@.

For example:

 > cat date_query.sql 
select sysdate from dual
 > okcli hr@xe:HR -@date_query.sql
SYSDATE

describe

The describe command will show for a given table or view:

  • each column, its datatype, if it's nullable
  • primary-key constraints (if it's a table)
  • foreign-key constraints (if it's a view)
  • the SQL query used to create the view (if it's a view)

For example:

Oracle-11g hr@xe:HR> desc HR.EMPLOYEES
+----------------+-----------+-------------+----------+
| COLUMN_NAME    | DATA_TYPE | DATA_LENGTH | NULLABLE |
+----------------+-----------+-------------+----------+

stored-procedures

Stored-procedures can be run with the exec command.

For example

Oracle-11g hr@xe:HR> exec some_schema.my_procedure(arg1, 'arg2')

favourite-commands

The \fs [name] command will save the current statement with a name.

The \f [name] command will load the statement with that name or list all the saved statements if no name is given.

The \fd [name] command will delete the saved statement.

For example

Oracle-11g hr@xe:HR> \fs depts select  * from HR.DEPARTMENTS where MANAGER_ID > 200

edit

When writing a statement you can escape to your favourite editor (set by $EDITOR) by adding ed to the start of the query.

When you save and exit the file it will take you back to the CLI with the statement that you finished editing in the file.

For example:

Oracle-11g hr@xe:HR> ed select * from

format

The format command sets the format of the query-output (if there is any).

The supported output formats are:

faq

DPI-1047: Cannot locate a 64-bit Oracle Client library: "libclntsh.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". See https://oracle.github.io/odpi/doc/installation.html#linux for help

If you see this error message make sure that the $ORACLE_HOME/lib is on $LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This is needed by cx-oracle to make the database connection. As a sanity check ls $ORACLE_HOME/lib should list the oracle libraries.

Update the library-path with:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/lib

windows support

In principle okcli should work on Windows but it has only been tested on Linux. If you're interested in testing on Windows please raise an issue.

thanks

Thanks to mycli. Most of the features (e.g. syntax highlighting, auto-complete) were implemented by the mycli core team for MySQL.
