Chapter 8. Client and Utility Programs
There are many different MySQL client programs that connect to the
server to access databases or perform administrative tasks. Other
utilities are available as well. These do not establish a client
connection with the server but perform MySQL-related operations.
This chapter provides a brief overview of these programs and then a
more detailed description of each one. Each program's description
indicates its invocation syntax and the options that it understands.
See Chapter 4, Using MySQL Programs, for general information
on invoking programs and specifying program options.
