recovering from mysqldump

I use mysqldump to backup my databases. Something like the following command:
mysqldump mydatabase > ./output.db

The output file is the SQL that would recreate the entire database. I have never had to recover data, but if I did, the only way I would know to do it would be to copy and paste the SQL from the file into a command line mysql session. I haven't found any option in mysqldump that would allow me to do it any other way. Am I missing something, or is this how it is intended to be used?
