Setting the default text editor

How can I change the default text editor invoked by Oracle SQL? I just downloaded Textpad, and I want it to be my default text editor. I am using Oracle 9i Release 2.

If your platform is Unix, then set the EDITOR environment variable to point to your new text editor. I have mine set to /bin/vi for the vi editor. If your platform is Windows, then launch SQL*Plus. On the menus, choose Edit->Editor->Define Editor. Then, enter the executable name of the new editor. The directory for this editor must be in your path.
