       mysql_find_rows - extract SQL statements from files


       mysql_find_rows [options] [file_name ...]


       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
       expects statements to be terminated with semicolon (;) characters.

       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.


           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.
