Captures command output and appends it to a file.
CAPTURE '<file>' | OFF
In the synopsis section of each statement, formatting has the following meaning:
- Uppercase means literal
- Lowercase means not literal
- Italics mean optional
- The pipe (|) symbol means OR or AND/OR
- Ellipsis (...) means repeatable
- « means a non-literal, open parenthesis used to indicate scope
- » means a non-literal, close parenthesis used to indicate scope
A semicolon that terminates CQL statements is not included in the synopsis.
To start capturing the output of a query, specify the path of the file relative to the current directory. Enclose the file name in single quotation marks. The shorthand notation in this example is supported for referring to $HOME.
Output is not shown on the console while it is captured. Only query result output is captured. Errors and output from cqlsh-only commands still appear.
To stop capturing output and return to normal display of output, use CAPTURE OFF.
To determine the current capture state, use CAPTURE with no arguments.
