Hey all.

I'm trying to get a hold of MySQL and am trying to dump the schema. This is the command I'm using:

mysql> mysqldump -user root -password=rootpass flatland > flatland.dump;

And this is the error I'm getting:

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 -user root -password=rootpass flatland > flatland.dump' at line 1

Any suggestions? I'm running the latest version of MySQL.
