Removing All Triggers in a Database

We were re-structuring our current database here in work and there was a need of removing triggers. Here is how it is done in bash for mysql:

mysql -u<dbuser> -p<dbpassword> –skip-column-names <dbname> -e ‘SHOW TRIGGERS;’| cut -f1|sed -r ‘s/(.*)/DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS \1;/’| mysql -u<dbuser> -p<dbpassword> <dbname>
