MYSQL_FIND_ROWS              MySQL Database System             MYSQL_FIND_ROWS

       mysql_find_rows - extract SQL statements from files

       mysql_find_rows [options] [file_name ...]

           This utility is deprecated in MySQL 5.6.17 and removed in MySQL 5.7

       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.
