Here’s an improved version of mybackup, a MySql database backup tool. The changes against 0.9.5c are:


  • option to exclude databases
  • by default exclude MySql’s information_schema metainfo DB
  • access TABLE STATUS rows by name instead of position
  • use the standard ‘-’ for STDOUT instead of ‘BLANK’ which wouldn’t work
  • open log file before writing any output
