I'm using the mysql cli in edit mode (\e).
> Select * from \e
Goes to vim and I finish typing my command.
Select * from test_table;
Only to realize I've forgotten to
use the database I need. Is there a way I can preserve this script in edit mode, switch back to the regular mysql mode, run my command, and then come back to edit?
Another example would be: I forget how a column name is spelled and I need to look it up after I've started typing a command in edit mode.
