Change SQL Prompt in oracle SQL*Plus (10g and up)

Below is an example to change the SQL*Plus prompt (10g and up), simple and yet very useful.
SET SQLPROMPT command is used to change the default SQL> prompt

1) Display username

set sqlprompt '_user>' 
2) Display database name
set sqlprompt '_connect_identifier_privilege>' 

Step 2 and 3 can be combined together to display username and database name together.
3) Display username and database name (e.g. apps@dbname> )
4) To set the time at sqlprompt
set time on 

Now the best part is to avoid typing this command everytime you open a new SQL*Plus session, edit glogin.sql file located at $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/admin directory as follows.
set time on
