Is there a way to spawn off to the shell from the mysql prompt, either
for a quick shell command (like an ls of your current directory), or to
stay there and run a couple commands, then get back to the same mysql
For example, on a UNIX box, from an Oracle SQL*Plus prompt I can do:
Or just type the ! and get to my shell. When I type 'exit' I am
returned to that sqlplus prompt.
Thanks in advance,
