select from v$controlfile truncated

Hello colleagues,
I'm using ORACLE 8 database;
I run sqldba then I select the content of v$controlfile view....
the result is truncated (!!) to 80 chars ...

probably I've to set some parameter to get the proper result (the NAME attribute is 513 chars long)

What's the command to resize the output of sqldba select?

thanks a lot
Enrico

SQL> set linesize 1000

It should help.

Sqldba - didn't that go out in the earliest versions of 7.0? If you're on version 8 - try "svrmgrl". If you're on version 8i or later, you should use sqlplus "/ as sysdba" from the logon that owns the database - which is probably "oracle".
