how to clear the mysql screen in windows

How to clear the MySQL screen in Windows xp? I mean the MySQL command window. There is no "clear screen" command that clears all the MYSQL queries.:roll:
Why is such an important command missed out by the makers of MySQL ?? :shock:

That would be a MySQL question, not a XAMPP issue.

Never-the-less -- you simply need to call them up right now and explain that to them!!! I'm sure they are waiting for your call with baited breath.

Of course, if you took the time to read and learn, or consider things for a moment, the answers would all be obvious

Good Luck

Dear Jon,
I saw your email.
FYI, cls command is a DOS command and it doesnot work in mysql prompt.
:mrgreen:
I am looking for mysql version of "cls" command.
I searched google and couldn't get a solution.

A. You should be searching the MySQL documentation and forums

B. and I suspect I knew what CLS meant b4 ippo was born (quite possibly)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CP/M

C. Buy a book (not a 'textbook' -- as they are usually written by academics who theorize but do little else) or get a tutuorial video on MySQL (yes they both still exist and are quite inexpensive). I have many dozens (maybe over a hundred) of books and training videos on databases and programming languages, and I use them to solve these exact kind of issues (lack of knowledge). If you REALLY want to learn MySQL using the mySQL monitor (that's the right name for the 'mysql prompt') use the Linux CBT MySQL course.

http://www.linuxcbt.com/products_linuxc ... dition.php

just look at the syllabus there!

I purchased the series before it was a subscription service (was very expensive) BUT well worth every penny. Now you can get a month (and likely most of the material done for $99.00) The presenter does almost all of the examples using the MySQL monitor. (that's why I know a fair amount about it)

:wink:

Doesn't exist in windows. Take a look at:

John is right though to a point. Unless you are knowledgeable with the constituent parts of XAMPP, you might not know that the issue you are encountering is a MySQL specific and therefore might not think to check MySQL resource (forums, etc) first.

you can though exit from the mysql command prompt and then issue CLS and then login again
