<?php
$src = file_get_contents("yourdumpfile.sql");

preg_match_all("/CREATE TABLE [^;]+;/",$src,$matches);

print_r($matches[0]); // $matches[0] will have the statements.

?>

I'm pretty sure @gr8gonzo has a good REGEX there, but I also wonder about the usefulness of the programmatic solution.  It took me less than 30 seconds to do it all by hand in my text editor.  See number 1205.

CREATE TABLE `a_images` (
  `a_images_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `profile_id` varchar(20) default NULL,
  `image_name` varchar(100) default NULL,
  `image_url` varchar(200) default NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`a_images_id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=88 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

I understand Ray's link, but  gr8gonzo code appears to work in every mysql dump file so I can reuse many times



 gr8gonzo:
how to echo
without
[0]=>
[1]=>
[2]=>
[3]=>

so i can copy paste into my mysql query editor
gr8gonzoConsultantCommented:
Just do a foreach loop and dump the values:

foreach($matches[0] as $query)
{
  echo $query . "\n\n";
}
