NAME
       mysql_setpermission - interactively set permissions in grant tables

SYNOPSIS
       mysql_setpermission [options]

DESCRIPTION
       mysql_setpermission is a Perl script that was originally written and contributed by Luuk
       de Boer. It interactively sets permissions in the MySQL grant tables.  mysql_setpermission
       is written in Perl and requires that the DBI and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed (see
       Section 2.15, "Perl Installation Notes").

       Invoke mysql_setpermission like this:

	   shell> mysql_setpermission [options]

       options should be either --help to display the help message, or options that indicate how
       to connect to the MySQL server. The account used when you connect determines which
       permissions you have when attempting to modify existing permissions in the grant tables.

       mysql_setpermissions also reads options from the [client] and [perl] groups in the .my.cnf
       file in your home directory, if the file exists.

       mysql_setpermission supports the following options:

       o   --help

	   Display a help message and exit.

       o   --host=host_name

	   Connect to the MySQL server on the given host.

       o   --password=password

	   The password to use when connecting to the server. Note that the password value is not
	   optional for this option, unlike for other MySQL programs.

	   Specifying a password on the command line should be considered insecure. See
	   Section 5.3.2.2, "End-User Guidelines for Password Security". You can use an option
	   file to avoid giving the password on the command line.

       o   --port=port_num

	   The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

       o   --socket=path

	   For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.

       o   --user=user_name

	   The MySQL user name to use when connecting to the server.
