Hey,
I want to get the script of a particular view outputed to an .sql or .txt file from an oracle database.
The only utility available is sqlplus via command prompt.  Could someone quickly explain how I go about doing this?
Thanks,
J

You can use spool to get the output into a file:

spool myfile.txt

set long 99999999 feedback off pagesize 0

select text
from dba_views
where view_name = 'MY_VIEW';

spool off
