      Description

      When cutting and pasting CLI examples from docs or labs, it should be possible to respect multiple lines. Either the MySQL command shell style with a trailing ; to make the command "executable" or using a \ as in Linux Shells. For the win both could work. At least one has to work so that it is easy to cut and paste commands from docs/web sites into the CLI.

        Support for multi line commands is not just a matter of copy and pasting of examples. It would considerably improve the readability and maintainability of large CLI scripts with long command lines.

        Done. You can use '\' to divide commands and operations across multiple lines.

        What if I make a typo can I up arrow and make a fix and "replay" the command like I can in a Linux/Dos Shell? Are these '\' added automatically on long lines? Did you look at the MySQL client which I think has behavior that is close to this?

        No, you can't navigate through the lines. I think It's gonna be too tricky to do that with the current state of things. But that'd be useful.
        '\' are not automatically added. You have to press Enter. I don't think we should support that.
        I have an idea of the feature in MySQL but it's been a long time since I used it.
