mysqlaccess is a tool for checking access privileges, developed by Yves Carlier.
It checks the access privileges for a host name, user name, and database combination. Note that mysqlaccess checks access using only the user, db, and host tables. It does not check table, column, or routine privileges specified in the tables_priv, columns_priv, or procs_priv tables.

mysqlaccess [host [user [db]]] OPTIONS
If your MariaDB distribution is installed in some non-standard location, you must change the location where mysqlaccess expects to find the mysql client. Edit the mysqlaccess script at approximately line 18. Search for a line that looks like this: <<code> $MYSQL = ´/usr/local/bin/mysql´; # path to mysql executable <</code>> Change the path to reflect the location where mysql actually is stored on your system. If you do not do this, a Broken pipe error will occur when you run mysqlaccess.
