I had to puzzle out the socket location also.  For me, what worked was
mysql> SHOW VARIABLES;

One of the variables had the socket location of the server.

You might try
mysql> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'socket';

P. 932 of DuBois, _MySQL_ (2nd ed) claims that the variable named
socket
is "The pathname to the UNIX domain socket, or the name of the named pipe
under Windows."

Cheers,
