I cant seem to set up the editor to use vi. I have tried define_editor=vi, but I get the error:
sp2-0110 cannot create save file "afriedt.buf"
Has anyone had this problem before?
define ur editor at os level.
ie, EDITOR=vi;export EDITOR
then it should work.
Its already defined in .profile.
Talk to your sys admin.
I had similar problems when I didn't have permissions in temp directory or when the temp directory was too full to write to.
Whenever vi is invoked, space in temp is needed.
You will have to define vairable _editor.
on slqplus prompt,
You can have this line define _EDITOR=vi in glogin.sql or login.sql
so that you need not define it everytime sqlplus is invoked.
You make sure that u have the full rights in temp & ur default directory.
