Hi all-

I am trying to test out mysql dump. From mysql> use testdb;

ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'mysqldump --databases testdb > animals.sql' at line 1

It is returning this error msg above.

Sorry to bother you but I am wondering why that won't work and generates that msg.
THANKS megatron
