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
