Oracle Command Line Reference Document?

I'm looking for a single document that contains ALL commands that can be run in SQL Plus (or Oracle SQL Developer, which is what I happen to use).

I'm so sick of the hideous web console failing on install or breaking a week after install.  (I miss the old Oracle 9i days when you could launch the non-web Enterprise Manager)

I want to do EVERYTHING -- repeat: EVERYTHING -- via command line.

That means querying database configuration information, objects and properties as well as making changes/additions/deletions.

I'm also sick of googling each and every command I need one at a time and wading through a bunch of long articles on trivia when all I need to know is the command itself.

Please.  If anybody knows where there is such a document, thanks much in advance.

(I currently have both Oracle10gR2 and Oracle11g databases, but the commands should be the same.)

Thanks again.

I don't think there is one document that contains everything.

You might actually have to do some light reading

In that library you just posted a link to, can you find commands that show me how to view tablespace names and properties?

tablespace  -- select * from dba_tablespaces;

datafiles -- select * from v$datafiles;

Which properties?

Again, there is no silver bullet.

you can download all of the documentation from the OTN links above in either HTML or PDF format.

I carry all documentation from 7.3 to 11gR2 on my laptop all time so I can reference them

In your particular case  you want the SQL*Plus reference as well as the SQL Reference.

Depending on your exact needs, you might also need the PL/SQL User Guide as well as the XDB Reference as well.

Also note, depending on your administrative needs you might want to look at the RMAN guide (Recovery Manager) too

And, this list could continue to grow too depending on just how many activities you want to pursue.
There is no SINGLE document that describes everything you can do with Oracle
