I like knoda for entering information into mysql, but for locating a specific record, it is not very convenient. Once upon a time, I used Q&A 4 for DOS. One could enter various things into form fields , press an <F> key, and voila, all matching records would pop up one after the other.

Is there a similar utility I can use to access mysql databases in linux? Am I just missing it in knoda? It seems so nice in all other respects. GUI is nice but by no means required. Q&A for DOS was really sweet even though it was text based. I'd be happy with the same.
