Wrench Running a SQL Query from UNIX


Could you please help me on this.

I have bulk of queries written in text file. I want to use those queries and want to execute from UNIX.
I don't want to run this file as a sql file as this file will change every week.

I want to run it in my environment as bulk sql statement from text file.

can anybody help me on this.

Thanks in advance.

sqlplus -s user/pwd@dbname  @$text_file
