MySQL Shell 8.0  /  ...  /  Vertical Format

5.6.3 Vertical Format

The vertical format option prints result sets vertically instead of in a horizontal table, in the same way as when the \G query terminator is used for an SQL query. Vertical format is more readable where longer text lines are part of the output.

To get this output format, start MySQL Shell with the --result-format=vertical command line option (or its alias --vertical), or set the MySQL Shell configuration option resultFormat to vertical.
