       myisamlog - display MyISAM log file contents


       myisamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]


       myisamlog processes the contents of a MyISAM log file.

       Invoke myisamlog like this:

           shell> myisamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]
           shell> isamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]

       The default operation is update (-u). If a recovery is done (-r), all writes and possibly
       updates and deletes are done and errors are only counted. The default log file name is
       myisam.log for myisamlog and isam.log for isamlog if no log_file argument is given. If
       tables are named on the command line, only those tables are updated.
