Generate html with the mysql client

September 12, 2013

I’m a big fan of the MySQL command line tool ie the default text client modestly named: mysql. I use it everyday because you can do almost everything with it (DML, DDL, DCL, administrative tasks,…).

It has many options including generate xml or html output.


So you can easily script it and generate an HTML document:



It’s very simple and it’s valid HTML but it is not valid XHTML!

Why, in 2013, a tool generates HTML rather than XHTML ?
