Handout 11: Homework 4. Given 12/02/05. Due 12/09/05.
Collaboration Policy: You are
allowed to discuss general strategies for solving a problem with other students
in the class, and also to clarify your understanding of the problem. You are
not allowed to copy or see somebody else’s homework.
This is a shorter homework, so
it is worth only 40 points.

browser. Use the MySQl browser to connect to kauveri.Stanford.edu using
the name and the password we gave out in class. You will now be logged on to the database server. You
can use “show databases;” to see the available databases. Then do “use
msande130;”. This database has three tables. Do “show tables;” to list the
tables. Do “describe MovieStar;” etc. to see a description of these
tables. You are now all set for the next two exercises.

Export the result as an html file, and submit a printout of this
