MY_PRINT_DEFAULTS(1)         MySQL Database System        MY_PRINT_DEFAULTS(1)



NAME
       my_print_defaults - display options from option files

SYNOPSIS
       my_print_defaults [options] option_group ...

DESCRIPTION
       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=password
           --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.

       o   --help, -?

           Display a help message and exit.

       o   --config-file=file_name, --defaults-file=file_name, -c file_name

           Read only the given option file.

       o   --debug=debug_options, -# debug_options

           Write a debugging log. A typical debug_options string is
           d:t:o,file_name. The default is d:t:o,/tmp/my_print_defaults.trace.

       o   --defaults-extra-file=file_name, --extra-file=file_name, -e
           file_name

           Read this option file after the global option file but (on Unix)
           before the user option file.

           For additional information about this and other option-file
           options, see Section 4.2.7, "Command-Line Options that Affect
           Option-File Handling".

       o   --defaults-group-suffix=suffix, -g suffix

           In addition to the groups named on the command line, read groups
           that have the given suffix.

           For additional information about this and other option-file
           options, see Section 4.2.7, "Command-Line Options that Affect
           Option-File Handling".

       o   --login-path=name, -l name

           Read options from the named login path in the .mylogin.cnf login
           path file. A "login path" is an option group containing options
           that specify which MySQL server to connect to and which account to
           authenticate as. To create or modify a login path file, use the
           mysql_config_editor utility. See mysql_config_editor(1).

           For additional information about this and other option-file
           options, see Section 4.2.7, "Command-Line Options that Affect
           Option-File Handling".

       o   --no-defaults, -n

           Return an empty string.

           For additional information about this and other option-file
           options, see Section 4.2.7, "Command-Line Options that Affect
           Option-File Handling".

       o   --show, -s

           As of MySQL 5.7.8, my_print_defaults masks passwords by default.
           Use this option to display passwords in cleartext.

       o   --verbose, -v

           Verbose mode. Print more information about what the program does.

       o   --version, -V

           Display version information and exit.
