    I like working with MySQL from the command line but I hate using the DOS window in Windows. There's no scrolling, resizing, or cut and paste. Is there another way to get a DOS window? some other kind of emulator or something like that? I know this is a little off topic, but maybe someone can help me out, short of "install linux!"

    Can I telnet to myself? I tried connecting to my MySQL server using a telnet program and port 3306 (or whatever it is...) but that didn't work.

    Here's your chance to help me....Thanks...

    Hmm, telnet to yourself... interesting idea. But you can't just telnet to mysql itself since it's not a telnet server. Go to Tucows and see if you can find a telnet server for Win. Just be careful about security!

    In Windows NT/2000 (and I'm 95% sure Win9x) you can adjust the buffer sizes of the dos prompt to get the ability to scroll. This coupled with DOSKEY and you have a usable window. You would also want to set it to insert mode. Just right-click the window title and choose properties.

    Thanks Aaron. That helped a little. I figured out how to enable the mouse, so I can cut and paste now. The maximum buffer is 50 lines, which all show on the screen, so there isn't any scrolling, but it's a little better than the 20 lines I had before. I can cut and paste examples now, at least, without having to telnet to one of my other servers...thanks again.

    Hey, thanks for the link to a page with a hundred other links to all kind of software without even a hint of which program might be worthwhile to me. Why don't you just answer every question with www.php.net and www.mysql.com, that should cover it.
