After I run the command in mysql SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST\G, it displays me a really long list of mysql processes and I'm only able to read the last 10 processes.

Is there any way I could paginate or print to file what it displays?

is putting all the what the command writes in your console to a file we called output.txt

YOURCOMMAND >> output.txt

nano is a text editor, you can move with the arrow-keys or page-up page-down

nano output.txt

Invoke the mysql command with this switch: --pager=less
