Here is another suggestion. Since I have already installed MySQL, but
not in the default location, but still added to my path.
I would love it if you could define a variable for it (at the top off
the script) to override the default assumption, still hard-coded in the
Extra points if you could try and detect the path to mysql using
something like this:
Or if no occurrence off mysql is found in the path environment using
something like this (which takes a bit longer than the previous off course):
find /c/Program\ Files/ -name mysql.exe -type f
In case it is not found you can revert to the default value, but I
prefer you would assign this to a variable (still).
