Outputting your data using inbuilt SQL Dev formatting

Oracle has build a number of formatting options into SQL Developer to allow you to output your data in some standard formats. This removes the need to use other tools or to write extra code or performs various follow up steps.
All you need to do is to add a comment and use the Scrip button
SELECT /*csv*/ * FROM scott.emp;
SELECT /*xml*/ * FROM scott.emp;
SELECT /*html*/ * FROM scott.emp;
SELECT /*delimited*/ * FROM scott.emp;
SELECT /*insert*/ * FROM SCOTT.EMP;
SELECT /*loader*/ * FROM scott.emp;
SELECT /*fixed*/ * FROM scott.emp;
SELECT /*text*/ * FROM scott.emp;

Hint: for some of these it is best to list the schema and table name in upper case
These are comments and not hints so they will not work in SQL*Plus.
