mysqldump should support wildcards

    Details

      Description

      I have dozens of databases with a given prefix, and I want to take a mysqldump of all of them.

      It should be as simple as something like this:
      $ mysqldump -u whatever -p --databases prefix_*

      but there is no support for wildcards. This is ridiculous. How can you not support wildcards?

      The workaround is to write a f***ing script:

      Pathetic.
