Description Barton Chittenden 2015-06-23 16:35:05 UTC
The following bug:

Bug 12372 -- "feature request: debian/scripts/koha-mysql should be able to handle arbitrary mysql arguments."

Extends the way that koha-mysql may be called. Once that patch is applied, arbitrary mysql arguments may be given after the instance name.

The synopsis should change to

    koha-mysql INSTANCE-NAME [ mysql arguments ]

Also, the '-e' option is now available, so the example usage may change to

    koha-mysql {instancename} -e "Some SQL query"

It would also be useful to provide an explicit example of a mysql argument whose functionality was previously entirely unavailable, e.g.

    koha-mysql {instancename} --skip-column-names

'See Also' should mention mysql.

The man page update should really be done on bug 12372, there's not really any point having them separate.
Comment 2 Barton Chittenden 2015-07-12 21:00:09 UTC
Added 'TODO' note to 12372 which covers documentation. Closing this bug as a duplicate.
