mysql < myscript.sql

of course, add other parameters in the beginning if you need to supply username/password, etc.

Below is the syntax to use:

mysql --host=servernane --user=username --password=password database_name < pathTofilename.sql
i.e. mysql -host=jupiter.localdomain.local -user=john.doe -password=IdontKnow salesDB < myscript.sql
