Hi: There!

I have an urgent question related to MySQL, I have a table in Production database. It has millions recodes since it is history table. But at this moment, I only need part of the table. I make a SQL query. How to export/dump this query result so that I could put recodes/rows into local development environment for debug?

They have one for that, too:

Be aware that there is a configuration directive (--local-infile) that affects this statement in certain contexts.
