MYISAMLOG(1)                 MySQL Database System                MYISAMLOG(1)

       myisamlog - display MyISAM log file contents
       isamlog - display contents of ISAM log file

       myisamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]

       isamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]

       myisamlog processes the contents of a MyISAM log file.  isamlog is
       similar, but is used with ISAM log files.

       Invoke myisamlog or isamloglike this:

          shell> myisamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]
          shell> isamlog [options] [log_file [tbl_name] ...]

       The default operation is update (-u). If a recovery is done (-r), all
       writes and possibly updates and deletes are done and errors are only
       counted. The default log file name is myisam.log for myisamlog and
       isam.log for isamlog if no log_file argument is given. If tables are
       named on the command line, only those tables are updated.

       o  -?, -I

          Display a help message and exit.
