[FWTools] .SHP -> MySQL Vertices

Hi everyone,

I'm attempting to move a .shp file into a MySQL table, and turn the shapes
into their component vertices/lines. So far I've gotten each of the shapes
into their own row using ogr2ogr -f "MySQL"
MYSQL:"dbname,host=,user=user,password=password,port=3306" -nln
"tableName" -a_srs "EPSG:4326" ../../US_tract_2000.shp

Now I seem to have the shape data as blobs in the database - does anyone
have any ideas as to the best way to turn those into vertices/lines?

Thanks very much,
