mysql_config_editor

Hi,
Excuse what might seem a dumb question. I'm trying to use mysql_config_editor and the instructions are that I should try something like:

shell> mysql_config_editor set --login-path=client
--host=localhost --user=localuser --password
Enter password: enter password "localpass" here
shell> mysql_config_editor set --login-path=remote
--host=remote.example.com --user=remoteuser --password
Enter password: enter password "remotepass" here

My confusion is where do I issue that command. If I launch a MSQL Shell I get the JS version and running that command just results in the message:

Unexpected identifier

I note that the instruction above has a prompt "shell" but I don't understand how to get that prompt.
Any help, really gratefully received!

Phil
