MySQL Shell 8.0  /  MySQL Shell Code Execution  /  Batch Mode Made Interactive

3.6 Batch Mode Made Interactive

This section describes code execution in batch mode.

  • In batch mode, all the command logic described above is not available, only valid code for the active language can be executed.

  • When processing SQL code, it is executed statement by statement using the following logic: read/process/print result.

  • When processing non-SQL code, it is loaded entirely from the input source and executed as a unit.

Use the --interactive (or -i) command-line option to configure MySQL Shell to process the input source as if it were being issued in interactive mode; this enables all the features provided by the Interactive mode to be used in batch processing.


In this case, whatever the source is, it is read line by line and processed using the interactive pipeline.
