User authentication.
table-name [,table-name...]
One or more tables to dump. Multiple tables can be specified, in a comma-separated list. Specify a table of % to dump all tables. The -t option can be specified only if the -f option is not.
The database to which you want to connect, which has the following form:
The name of the character set of the tables to be dumped.

If comma is specified, dump in comma-delimited format. If quote is specified, dump in quote-delimited format. The default is quote.

Check for syntax errors without dumping any rows.
