Execute mysql command from shell

phpMyAdmin is a very slow application if you want to execute a query on your database. If you know the name of the database then any GUI tool is an overhead. So I have written a one liner shell script to do that for me 🙂

Here\’s the script:

echo \”select * from table where field like \”%$1%\”\”|mysql -h doamin.com -u amit -p -D amit -r –password=hello

When run with one argument it will execute the sql query directly without asking for password also.
