    try....


    failing that you could use MySQL Adminstrator

    you could use other tools such as PHPMyAdmin, or other tools mentioned in the MySQL manual

    shell is the equivalent of command line

    in the windows world start | run | command OR select the command prompt icon

    in the Linux world the there will be either an icon labeled shell

    in either event you will then need to navigate to where the files are.. no easy matter

    I'd strongly reccommend that you use MySQL Adminsitrator or PHPMyAdmin in preference to going to the command line
