I'm looking for beginners guide to the mysql monitor

P: n/a
MLH
I am brand new both to linux and to mysql.

When I type mysql on my linux box, the mysql monitor
appears. There, I know how to type help and exit. that's
all I know. I need a book or online source that will teach
me to use the mysql monitor. Recommendations?

The Mysql Reference Manual is an excellent document. It's not written
in hard to understand geek-speak like man pages, but everyday english.
It is also very thorough. OTOH, it is very detailed and can wear ya'
down with all the information contained within. But, it's what I fall
back on when I can't find the answers anywhere else. This manual
should be included in the doc section of the installed package.
Online is:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/manual-info.html

A much briefer book I picked up is Apache, Mysql, PHP: Weekend Crash
Course by Steve Schafer. It's hits only the necessay high points to get one up
and running without all the detail. Between the two, I'm moving right
along. Oh, a minor disclaimer .... "Weekend" (author claims 15hrs) may be
within the realm of possibility for bright young whippersnappers, but
this old geezer is WAY! off schedule. ...lol.... But, I still
recommend it.

That's good! When I worked in tech support, a person called our help
line _twice_ in one day asking how to exit the database monitor tool. :-)

The reference docs for the mysql monitor are at:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/mysql.html

And also there's the MySQL tutorial, which I mentioned in another
posting. I'll include the link again for posterity:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/tutorial.html
