Is there a way to restrict certain tables from the mysqldump command?
For example, I’d use the following syntax to dump only table1 and table2:
mysqldump -u username -p database table1 table2 > database.sql
But is there a similar way to dump all the tables except table1 and table2? I haven’t found anything in the mysqldump documentation, so is brute-force (specifying all the table names) the only way to go?
