Could be wrong here but I recall a 'system' command that you can use at

I don't think the system command in mysql came into effect until
mysql4.x - use 'system <command>'.

I'm not sure if answer your question but the MySQL shell can interact
with the OS with the "\!" (Execute a system shell command) command.

Both "system" and "\!" mysql _client_ commands run shell commands locally
(i.e. on the local system running the mysql client, with the privileges of
the current user) -- not remotely (on the host running the mysqld database
server, with the privileges of the user actually running it).
