Subject:Numbering Rows on Output
View as plain text  
I have a table that lists the tasks a program has to do.  Lately I've found I 
can have an "at-a-glance" status report of how things are going on by writing 
a loop (in bash scripting, on Linux, btw) that uses "mysql -e" to display the 
list of tasks and their current state.  It's quick and a lot simpler than I 
thought it would be to create a self-updating status display.

The only thing missing is that it would be helpful to be able to add an extra 
column on the left for a row count -- preferably so each selected row has a 
number beside it, but putting a summary count on the last line (or adding an 
extra line with a summary count below it) would be helpful.

I've Googled, but it seems this is almost impossible to do.  Is it?  Or is 
there a simple way to have a count next to the rows being displayed?
