sqlplus enabling arrow keys for command history

It is very annoying when you in sqlplus under Linux cannot use ARROW keys to choose between executed commands.
there is a workaround for that, it's name is rlwrap:
sudo apt-get install rlwrap

then you can execute:
rlwrap sqlplus /nolog
or create an alias on sqlplus to be executed as rlwrap sqlplus.
