i was looking for a replacement for sybase central, and this serves the purpose. but when i could not find one, i was willing to settle for isql. i already was using sqlplus, but my question was not properly posed, and dkaisla was right on the money. nav kum v helped out by giving the info on Toad, which i had never seen or used. i like the product now, and i have already download and installed. I thank both the experts.

oh i thought you were looking for the command line tool. oracle has a freeware, SQL Developer, which you can use. it can be found on OTN
