How to pull data from one column of a mysql table

To see data from one column, it is enough to execute the SQL query (where “abcd” is the name of the column in the table):

SELECT abcd FROM table;

To export to a file, just run the command in Linux:

mysql -u root -e "SELECT abcd FROM database;" -s -N > file.txt

Here is an example of exporting email addresses from a mysql table to an http page using PHP.
The thought immediately came to this plan (create a php file and open it through the browser):

<?php
// Connecting to mysql server
mysql_connect("localhost", "USER", "PASSWORD") or die (mysql_error ());
// Choosing a database
mysql_select_db("users") or die(mysql_error());
// SQL query
$rows = "SELECT * FROM account";
// Run this SQL query
$d = mysql_query($rows);
// Each row becomes an array ($row) using the mysql_fetch_array
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($d)) {
// Display the values of the email column
echo $row['email'] . "<br />";
}
// Close the connection to the database
mysql_close();
?>
