How to format the output of query in SQLcl to have no header?

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I want to execute a query that will produce an output that are SQL commands too to be executed later. Something like:

    'DROP ' || OBJECT_TYPE || ' "' || owner || '"."' || object_name || '";' as command

The problem is that the output always have the header. In this case "command".
I tried the documentation, but its very simple and brief in its explanations.

How can I disable the header, or where can I find a more complete documentation on how the formatting in SQLcl works?
