Uh ... what?

mysqld, mysql, mysqladmin, mysqldump, mysqlshow, ... For example,
if you run mysql --help, the output includes:
                                                                                
Possible variables for option --set-variable (-O) are:                         
connect_timeout       current value: 0                                         
max_allowed_packet    current value: 16777216                                  
net_buffer_length     current value: 16384                                     
select_limit          current value: 1000                                      
max_join_size         current value: 1000000
