mysql command line client

Hello, I'm a php/mysql beginner...
Is there any way of making the mysql command line client full-screen?
Sometimes it's easier to use the client than go thru php, but
since it's only about 80 characters wide that limits its usefulness.

Thanks,
Gerard [http://homepage.eircom.net/~gerfmcc]

That's not really a php question, is it? Please post this question
somewhere else, this is php. :)

I did a search for MySQL newsgroups but there are none available on my
ISP's newsgroup server, hence my request for assistance here.
I think Zach was right; the question was short and near enough
on-topic to be considered relevant, and apparently there was a concise
answer.
Unfortunately, several other people felt it was necessary to wag their
fingers. Please stop for a moment to consider whether such knee-jerk
responses are always appropriate.

I'm sorry your ISP doesn't support comp.database.m ysql or other mysql
newsgroups. But you can still access them through Google Groups.

And where in this newsgroup's name do you see "MYSQL"? Or where in your
inquiry did you even reference "PHP"?

It's not a knee-jerk reaction. Rather, it's trying to keep this
newsgroup to PHP questions like it is intended.

In this and a lot of other newsgroups, if you ask an off-topic question
and you will be told about it.

And it doesn't matter if you agree with Zach or not. He's new to this
newsgroup and obviously doesn't understand how this newsgroup works yet
(his first post was three days ago where he admitted he is a new PHP
user). Rather, you should be listening to people like Rik and Rami, who
have been on here much longer.

So, let's have MS windows questions on this group (because php can run

Let's have ...
Yes...PHP and MySql so closely used in the industry its almost
impossible to learn PHP without learning MySql.

Now, about the topic of posting his question in this group. Yes it was
not the best place to post it, but Rami could have simply answered his
question, and politely informed him that this is not the appropriate
newsgroup to post those kinds of questions. Instead he was as I said and
ass. Maybe you guys forgot what its like being new and not even knowing
what group to post questions. I'm new enough that I still remember times
when I wasn't sure whether or not to post in MySql or PHP when I had a
problem. Some of you need to relax its not like he asked how to perform
a mail merge with word, he wanted an easier way to access his database
than through php.

Nonsense. I can (and have) use plenty of PHP without MySQL, even without a
database. Nor problems there, MySQL is 'just another possible source of
data'.

No and, it sets precedents. Even now more and more people keep turning up
here for MySQL questions. Why? Because they get answered. I myself am also
guilty, giving answers to those questions.

I have no problem that people ask MySQL questions in this group... a lot
of us run LAMP servers after all.

Not to mention the original question had *almost* nothing to do with
MySQL.

The MySQL client will produce output as wide as the terminal you're
running it in. Set the xterm window for 120 characters (for instance) and
the MySQL client will produce 120 character wide output.

Maybe YOU don't. But most of us would rather see PHP questions here.

If you want MySQL questions, try one of the MySQL newsgroups. That's
what they're there for.

--Rik Wasmus
I'm not disagreeing about where it should have been posted. And I
probably overreacted to Rami's response...but the guy was asking a very
simple question, (and only 6-8 off topic questions have been asked in
the last 1000 posts) and is obviously new. I just think he should have
answered and then politely told him there are places where he could get
a better answer as the post is off topic. I've got a lot of help from
yourself and others here, I just hate it when someone doesn't give the
new guys a break. Anyways, this is getting off topic and has nothing to
do with PHP so I'll end my comments on this.
