How to restrict select statement output in SQL Plus so that It will wait for user to wait till user hits enter or space to see next page of results / rows... Instead of displaying all in a one shot?

I know about set linesize X but that will split the output after X number of lines but it will display all 100 or 1000 rows in one shot... I need to see or hold first 100 results and then I want to hit enter or space to see next 100 results...

You can use "set pause on" then you can make page size "set pagesize 50 or 100 whatever you want"

I would go with pause but add one more command after the set pause on

set pause 'hit enter to continue...'

otherwise you'll have a blank line

Bet you money that someday soon, you'll run a query that should take seconds and will wonder why it isn't returning...

It's because pause in 'on' has no prompt.

Not the same.  You didn't post pagesize.
