Note that only myisamchk (not isamchk) has the -c option. This is the
same thing as running isamchk without any options.
myisamchk -c is a 'small fast check', while 'myisamchk -e' is a
'through check'. Normally -c (or no options) should be enough, but
if one still suspects corruption then one should try -e.
