and many more (use ‘help’ to find the available commands)

### Note:

  • Item related commands use the currently selected table (see ‘use’ command) but you can pass a table name as first parameter prefixed by ‘:’
  • Command completion is enabled (and it will complete table names)
  • You can set various flags (like debug, verbose, pretty-print, etc.) using the ‘set’ command (try ‘set -l’)k
  • You can redirect the output of commands using standard shell redirection ( > outfile )
  • You can execute shell commands using ‘!shell command’
