WL#999: --limit option to mysqlbinlog
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: High
Asked by Sinisa: when you read a big binlog with mysqlbinlog, if you want only a few lines: mysqlbinlog --position=xx --limit=xx On Unix systems one can use 'head': mysqlbinlog --position=xx | head: at least on Linux, when head terminates it kills mysqlbinlog (so mysqlbinlog will not read the whole file (which would take a long time)), so this task is not super-urgent. On Windows, pipes don't work the same so mysqlbinlog would read the whole file so it would be useful (though users can do Control-C).
