       mysql_setpermission - interactively set permissions in grant tables

       mysql_setpermission [options]

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

       mysql_setpermission is a Perl script that was originally written and contributed by Luuk de Boer. It
       interactively sets permissions in the MySQL grant tables.  mysql_setpermission is written in Perl and requires
       that the DBI and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed (see Section 2.13, "Perl Installation Notes").

       Invoke mysql_setpermission like this:

           shell> mysql_setpermission [options]

       options should be either --help to display the help message, or options that indicate how to connect to the
       MySQL server. The account used when you connect determines which permissions you have when attempting to modify
       existing permissions in the grant tables.

       mysql_setpermissions also reads options from the [client] and [perl] groups in the .my.cnf file in your home
       directory, if the file exists.

       mysql_setpermission supports the following options:

       ?   --help

           Display a help message and exit.

       ?   --host=host_name

           Connect to the MySQL server on the given host.

       ?   --password=password

           The password to use when connecting to the server. Note that the password value is not optional for this
           option, unlike for other MySQL programs.

           Specifying a password on the command line should be considered insecure. See Section, "End-User
           Guidelines for Password Security". You can use an option file to avoid giving the password on the command

       ?   --port=port_num

           The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

       ?   --socket=path

           For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.

       ?   --user=user_name

           The MySQL user name to use when connecting to the server.
