shell syntax

The above assumes a Unix-like shell where single quotes provide argument quoting. When using cmd.exe on Windows you’ll probably want to use double quotes and switch to single quotes within the query: "FROM 'a'"

(The example above uses the jq utility to nicely format the JSON output.)
