Q

Tuning out the beeps

How do you invoke the no beep option in MySQL?
Those little beeps can hurt the ears, especially when I was just starting out with MySQL and seemed to trigger the beep on a very regular basis.

To keep the MySQL client from beeping on errors, start it with the --no-beep option:

mysql -u myuser -p --no-beep

You can see the full list of startup options here.
