mysql_find_rows — extract SQL statements from files

Synopsis

mysql_find_rows [options] [file_name ...]

Description

mysql_find_rows reads files containing SQL statements and extracts statements that match a given regular expression or that contain USE db_name or SET statements. The utility was written for use with update log files (as used prior to MySQL 5.0) and as such expects statements to be terminated with semicolon (;) characters. It may be useful with other files that contain SQL statements as long as statements are terminated with semicolons.

Invoke mysql_find_rows like this:

shell> mysql_find_rows [options] [file_name ...]

Each file_name argument should be the name of file containing SQL statements. If no file names are given, mysql_find_rows reads the standard input.

Examples:

mysql_find_rows --regexp=problem_table --rows=20 < update.log
mysql_find_rows --regexp=problem_table  update-log.1 update-log.2

mysql_find_rows supports the following options:

· --help, --Information

Display a help message and exit.

· --regexp=pattern

Display queries that match the pattern.

· --rows=N

Quit after displaying N queries.

· --skip-use-db

Do not include USE db_name statements in the output.

· --start_row=N

Start output from this row.
