4.7.3 my_print_defaults — Display Options from Option Files

my_print_defaults displays the options that are present in option groups of option files. The output indicates what options will be used by programs that read the specified option groups. For example, the mysqlcheck program reads the [mysqlcheck] and [client] option groups. To see what options are present in those groups in the standard option files, invoke my_print_defaults like this:

shell> my_print_defaults mysqlcheck client
--user=myusername
--password=secret
--host=localhost

The output consists of options, one per line, in the form that they would be specified on the command line.

my_print_defaults supports the following options.
