How can I do that?

Or like this?

Code:
alias runsql='sqlplus /NOLOG @programname.sql'

This assumes that your login environment is suitable for running "sqlplus" and that programname.sql contains a suitable "connect" command.

Sorry, but my intention was different.
Say I have several putty windows opened. Now I want that when I connect to production database , then the font color changes to red.
Now I can write an alias in shell to do that, but how do I write an alias that will connect to production database and run my shell program so that the SQL font color changes to red.

add this to your ~/.bash_profile
Code:
sqlplS () {
if [ $(echo "${1#*@}"|grep -w PRODUCTION_STRING) ] ; then
echo -en "\\033[1;31m" && sqlplus $1 && echo -en "\\033[0;39m"
else
sqlplus $1
fi
}

( change to "PRODUCTION_STRING" to real_production_db_string in tns )

Code:
$ sqlplS myuser@PRODUCTION_DB

...............
