MySQL server comes with a command line interface, which will allow you to operate with the server with SQL statements and other commands. To start the command line interface, you can run the \mysql\bin\mysql program. The tutorial exercise below shows you how to use the command line interface to create a table and insert a row to table:

>\mysql\bin\mysql
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.

mysql> use test;

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.58 sec)

mysql> INSERT INTO fyi_links VALUES ('dev.fyicenter.com');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.38 sec)

mysql> SELECT * FROM fyi_links;
