Execute multiple SQL scripts from single SQL Plus connection

I would like to do a single connection to sqlplus and execute some querys.
Actually I do for every query one connection to database


echo 'select STATUS from v$instance;
exit' > $SQL_FILE

sqlplus user/pass@sid @$SQL_FILE > $SELECT_RESULT

echo 'select VERSION from v$instance;
exit' > $SQL_FILE

sqlplus user/pass@sid @$SQL_FILE > $SELECT_RESULT

echo 'select VERSION from v$instance;
exit' > $SQL_FILE

sqlplus user/pass@sid @$SQL_FILE > $SELECT_RESULT

is it posible?

Why don't you do this?
echo "select STATUS from v$instance;
select VERSION from v$instance;
select VERSION from v$instance;

sqlplus user/pass@sid @$SQL_FILE > $SELECT_RESULT

# 3  
I need to save the result in variables or files with the same name ($SELECT_RESULT)
# 4  
anybody know?

This sentence does not make any sense. Also your second and third queries are the same.

Please give a good clear example making it clear what is a file and what is a variable. Please make is clear whether any or all of them are different for each query.

You could combine the queries into one query:
select version,status from v$instance;

Also personally I would use an Oracle "spool" command to write the results to a file (i.e. not a Shell redirect).

Here's something that may help

This has been tested on Solaris using dtksh and Oracle 10g.

Construct the query so it returns rows as name=value, so they can be used in the shell script.
Read the query output a line at a time.
for each row returned, if it is not null, use eval to make it a shell variable.

# Oracle environment is assumed to be set already.

unset version  # Remove variable names from the environment if they exist.
unset status

( sqlplus -s / <<EOF
  set heading off;
  select 'version='||'1.2' from dual;
  select 'status='||'UP' from dual;
while read line
 if [[ -n $line ]]
   then eval $line

print "Version: $version"
print "Status: $status"

$ sptest
Version: 1.2
Status: UP

Hope this helps.
