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.

This statement can execute only format description events and row events.
