Thank you for your reply.
I'm running it on Linux(Ubuntu) and here is the output of file command.
hwatari@hwatari-desktop2:/usr/local/mysql$ file scripts/mysql_install_db
scripts/mysql_install_db: POSIX shell script text executable
I have looked for the reference to this option in mysql_install_db but couldn't find it.
