Hi,
I have database called primary with 400 mysql tables, some triggers.

In theory I should able to carry mysqldump export and then use mysql to import it. And it works partially.

I found problem with triggers, functions . They are tagged as primary database  and while compilation it fails as I am compiling it on another database.

For exa
 mysql -p123 -utheprimary  thesecondary < theprimary_bkup - Worked

But I had to carry within vi
%s/theprimary/thesecondary/g

I need to automate this task thru bash script. I think awk/sed should do the trick.

Thanks

be sure to check your regex in the sed command to properly format for you,
and the check to make sure new.sql is in the format you want.

Can I directly pass this to mysql to load data ?

 mysql -p123 -uthesecondary thesecondary < cat <old.sql> | sed -e 's/<this>/<that>/'
yes you can, but I'll advice you check first. of course once you've checked and it does what you want, why not.
the syntax though would have to be like this to work
cat <old.sql> | sed -e 's/<this>/<that>/' |  mysql -p123 -uthesecondary thesecondary -
