Subject:[Suggestion for mysql command line tool]
View as plain text  
I'd like to make a suggestion to the authors of MySQL:

Perhaps you can put in SQL syntax help like Postgresql has in their command
line client.  It's very helpful =)

-Graeme

P.S. Here is an example:

=> \h select
Command: select
Description: retrieve tuples
Syntax:
select [distinct on <attr>] <expr1> [as <attr1>], ... <exprN> [as
<attrN>]
        [into [table] <class_name>]
        [from <from_list>]
        [where <qual>]
        [group by <group_list>]
        [having <having_clause>]
        [order by <attr1> [ASC | DESC] [using <op1>], ... <attrN> ]
        [union [all] select ...];
