13.7.6.1 BINLOG Syntax

BINLOG 'str'

BINLOG is an internal-use statement. It is generated by the mysqlbinlog program as the printable representation of certain events in binary log files. (See Section 4.6.7, “mysqlbinlog — Utility for Processing Binary Log Files”.) The 'str' value is a base 64-encoded string the that server decodes to determine the data change indicated by the corresponding event. This statement requires the SUPER privilege. It was added in MySQL 5.1.5.
