Yes, but that is command line only and requires knowledge of SQL unless 
you're talking about a client different from "MySQL Monitor" invoked by 
the "mysql" command.  I don't wish to learn SQL syntax just to do basic 
operations.  If you're talking about a different executable, please 
explain further as I don't understand what you mean.
