‘\c’ option means ‘clear’ and is used to clear the current input. Suppose if we do not want to execute a command that we are entering, then we can use a clear \c option which clears the current input. For example, the use of \c option can be done as follows −
mysql> Select * -> from\c
In the example above, when we use \c in a statement, MySQL clears the current input and returns back to the MySQL prompt for accepting other statements.
