Description of problem:

"mysql -D dbname ..." results in showing the usage page, instead of using the argument as databasename . If the "-D" gets removed from the cmdline, it works as expected. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
[root@ mysqldumps]# mysql -u root -pXXXXXXXXX –D dbname < traffic_ip
Actual results:

[root@ mysqldumps]# mysql -u root -pXXXXXXX –D dbname < traffic_ip

Usage: mysql [OPTIONS] [database]
  -?, --help          Display this help and exit.

Expected results:

Importing the SQL , as -D is mentioned in the shown help as the Databasename:

  -T, --debug-info    Print some debug info at exit.

  -D, --database=name Database to use.

                      Set the default character set.

Try using -D and not –D.  The above seems to be using some unicode dash character and not minus.  Try typing it in manually if this was copy-n-pasted from somewhere.
