Tutorials on Oracle's website assume that I'm already in SQL*Plus.  They tell me to execute some script.  The script then does a
CONNECT system@orc1.world

First of all how do I get into SQL*Plus when it prompts me for a username and password?   Which account should be used to run these examples?

what sqlplus are you talking about?  GUI version (it's called sqlplusw only for windows) or command-line?

they are using Command-line sqlplus to do script execution.


you can execute script in one of two ways :

1. first log in to database via sqlplus

I assume you are in windows:

C:\>sqlplus "system/manager@orcl.world"

then

SQL>@<file_path_to_script_file>


2. you can also execute a sql script directly

C:\>sqlplus "system/manager@orcl.world" @<script_file_name>

If you say ,you are in oracle then, you must be getting a dialog box which asks for a username ,password and host string

So enter username-  scott  
password- tiger
host string - enter server name if you are on a client machine else leave it blank


or

So enter username-  system
password- manager
host string - enter server name if you are on a client machine else leave it blank

OR


Try executing the following command on the command prompt  depending on where oracle is installed ----

c:\ connect scott/tiger@servername

or

c:\ connect system/manager@servername

All the best

ishando's solution was what I was looking for because I needed a way to log into SQLPlus without specifying username and password.  The Oracle example scripts do that for me.
