Restoring database dump to database with different name

I have database backup/dump made with mysqldump tool.

mysqldump tool have swith, that allow me to disable adding "create db" statement into dabase backup/dump = --no-create-db. It works fine.


backup/dump file contains another statement: USE <database> that point to existing, production database that is currently backed up/dumped.

I need to create automatic process, which allow me, to create test environment for (of course) testing purposes, developing etc.

I had a little hope that I create another script file, that automaticly DROP and CREATE database_test = clear test environment, and when I use mysql command line client tool, to import backup/dump file for restor - I planned to use --database=<database_name> switch to connect to database_test.

so command will looks like this:
mysql --user=<user_name> --password=<password> --host=<hostname> (blablabla) --database=database_test < dump.sql


mysqldump tool automatically adds USE <database> to dump file, that overrides --database=database_test parameter.

How can I disable adding USE <database> statement to dump file by mysqldump tool (of course - I can develop simple application that disable any line containing USE word - but maby there is simple solution for my problem)
