I am reading MySQL's manuals.
. /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql ~
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql:1: command not found: ????^G /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql:2: permission denied: /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql:3: parse error near `}'
. /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin ~
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin:9: parse error near `)'
These error messages suggest me that my MySQL seems to be corrupted. I did not found by Google explanations for the error messages.
What do the messages really mean?
