Client auto vertical output

Do you hate it when you execute a query in the mysql cli only to have the output wrap three times making it almost impossible to read? Do you end up re-executing the query with \G waiting once again for the query to run? Well wait no more! My very first submitted patch to mysql is a client patch that adds –auto-vertical-output. This option compares the width of your terminal to the width of the result set and enables vertical output if it’s going to wrap. The patch link and details are Bug #26780
