Copy mysql database table by query / command line

We can find lot of solutions to make copy of table.
Here is one of the simple solution which I got while google.

Copy table with in a Database

use databasename;

CREATE TABLE exampletable_copy LIKE exampletable;
INSERT exampletable_copy SELECT * FROM exampletable; 


Copy table from Database-1 to Database-2

use databasename2;

CREATE TABLE exampletable_copy LIKE exampletable.databasename1;
INSERT exampletable_copy SELECT * FROM exampletable.databasename1


Hint:
First query used to create table with structure of original table.
Second query used to copy data from table to table-copy.
