Oh, I just figured out, you want to read the file from the local machine... The only mechanism i can think of that avoids having the plain password in the cmdline is through stdin, but you obviously need it to interact with mysql. Try forwarding the mysql socket to the local machine over ssh, then connect to it (TCP forwarding is a bit more straightforward than unix socket, but the latter can be done as well, after jumping through a few hoops like socat). I feel complied to say that you probably need to take a step back and rethink what you need so the black magicks are avoided.

comment Useful contract hints for sysadmin consultants?
Thanks, it's exactly the kind of knowledge I am looking for. The call sheets tip in particular was enlightening. Not sure how the liability insurance works (especially as over here in Eastern Europe this kind of things are not too established yet), but I'll look into it.
