Dear List -

I am afraid that I am missing something in a major way.....

mysql> printf("%b %d %f %s\n", 123, 123, 123, "test");
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'printf("%b %d %f %s\n", 123, 123, 123, "test")' at line 1

Where is my mistake?  The code above is copied from the MySQL manual!!

And while we are on the subject of my ignorance.....

I wish to write to file named Site the letter A, and read it back.

I wish to write to file named Starter the number 1000 , and read it back.

How do I do it?

I'd better ask these questions now, so when they come up in the next hour, I will not have to bother you with another email!
