Upgrading SQL*Plus

I have an old version Oracle RDBMS 7i. For my purpose, I want to upgrade only SQL*Plus to the new version, not the whole database. If my idea is correct, please guide me how to do it.

You can't upgrade just the SQL*Plus application. But what you can do is to install a new version of SQL*Plus. SQL*Plus also needs Oracle Client software installed, notably the networking components. This can all be installed into a completely different ORACLE_HOME so that it does not interfere with the current Oracle 7 software. Then, you can connect to the Oracle 7 database.
