How can we run a MySQL statement without termination semicolon?

MySQLMySQLi Database

With the help of \G or \g option just at the end of the MySQL statement, we can run it without the semicolon. Consider the example below −

mysql> Select * from Stock_item\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
item_name: Calculator
    Value: 15
 Quantity: 89
*************************** 2. row ***************************
item_name: Notebooks
    Value: 63
 Quantity: 40
*************************** 3. row ***************************
item_name: Pencil
    Value: 15
 Quantity: 40
*************************** 4. row ***************************
item_name: Pens
  Value : 65
Quantity: 32
*************************** 5. row ***************************
item_name: Shirts
    Value: 13
 Quantity: 29
*************************** 6. row ***************************
item_name: Shoes
    Value: 15
 Quantity: 29
*************************** 7. row ***************************
item_name: Trousers
    Value: 15
 Quantity: 29
7 rows in set (0.00 sec)

The above query with \G (omitting semicolon) returns the result set in a vertical format.

mysql> Select * from Stock_item\g
+------------+-------+----------+
| item_name  | Value | Quantity |
+------------+-------+----------+
| Calculator |    15 |       89 |
| Notebooks  |    63 |       40 |
| Pencil     |    15 |       40 |
| Pens       |    65 |       32 |
| Shirts     |    13 |       29 |
| Shoes      |    15 |       29 |
| Trousers   |    15 |       29 |
+------------+-------+----------+
7 rows in set (0.00 sec)

The above query with \g (omitting semicolon) returns the result set in a tabular format.
