Is there a way to create a shortcut to the mysql console(DOS box) that will allow me to add the login switches so I can just start using a database instead of having to type in all the details everytime?

why dont you download a mysql manger like SQLyog instead?

you define you database connections in the program and then admin from within the GUI

Actually, I prefer MySQL Manager for my GUI. Sometimes I just need to use the console because of some bizarre code like:

CREATE table MyTable (field var1(x),var2(y),var3(z) PRIMARY KEY(var1, var2))

$CrappyTutorialWriter="Janet Valade - PHP & MYSQL for DUMMIES"

My GUI wouldn\'t allow this code so I needed to use the console, only to discover that the author of the code is $CrappyTutorialWriter.

I use EMS also, but yog is free.

perhaps, EMS is being too strict on its SQL parsing, or perhaps MySQL admin is being too lax?
