Yup, the SQL*Plus editing functions are... awkward, yeah, that's a good word!  I looked at Tora, but it was overkill for us.  I 
found a very nice readline wrapper in Perl named uniread (http://unread.sourceforge.net) that works great for us.  As a bonus, 
uniread is very general and can be used for just about any program that does not support readline editing.  I even use it for 
nsupdate.  It's very easy to install, but I wrote a specfile if you want to roll your own RPM.
