No, I'm not. I'm just looking for features similar to Oracle SQL*Plus
scripting, where:
1. You run a script using @my_script.sql
2. You can pass parameters to a script and refer to the by &1, &2 and so on
3. You can print something using PROMPT
4. You can ask for a parameter using ACCEPT
5. You can set display options using SET (e.g. SET FEEDBACK OFF)
