How do I get the rows_examined after I run a query?

I know I can look at the mysql log file, which is not the answer I am looking for.

Basically, something similar to:

mysql> select rows_examined from users left join acct on users.id=acct.id;

This will allow me to analyzed LARGE rows_examined so I can see where my slow queries are based on joins.
