The answer is RUN, R or RU.

                                              IMPORTANT NOTE

'/' will only execute the last sql statement stored in the buffer and will not display it.

LIST, LIS, LI or L will list (Display) the sql statement stored in the buffer but will not execute.

EDIT, EDI or ED will allow you to edit the sql code in an external text editor

RUN, LIST and EDIT are  SQL*Plus commands. For their usage and meaning you can refer to

LIST and L is correct but you can also type "ED" also on sqlplus window and enter, it will open a notepad window for you to edit (if you required) otherwise you can press ALT + F4 and ENTER key.
