    The package installation plops this file into /usr/local/bin/mysqladmin. /usr/local/bin should be in your PATH already (meaning you don't have to specify the full path to the program), but if not, you can certainly do "/usr/local/bin/mysqladmin" without a problem.

    Or, you could "cd /usr/local/bin" and then run the "mysqladmin" command as shown.

        Sometimes when you install new command line programs in OS X, the terminal (command line) will not know about the new software. Provided your shell profile has the required paths in it you can simply type:
