Can I restore a single table from a full mysql mysqldump file?

I have a mysqldump backup of my mysql database consisting of all of our tables which is about 440 megs. I want to restore the contents of just one of the tables from the mysqldump. Is this possible? Theoretically, I could just cut out the section that rebuilds the table I want but I don’t even know how to effectively edit a text document that size.

Dump a mysql database to a plaintext (CSV) backup from the command line

I’d like to avoid mysqldump since that outputs in a form that is only convenient for mysql to read. CSV seems more universal (one file per table is fine). But if there are advantages to mysqldump, I’m all ears. Also, I’d like something I can run from the command line (linux). If that’s a mysql script, pointers to how to make such a thing would be helpful.

Speeding up mysql dumps and imports

If you’ve been wishing for multi-threaded mysqldump, wish no more. This tool dumps MySQL tables in parallel. It is a much smarter mysqldump that can either act as a wrapper for mysqldump (with sensible default behavior) or as a wrapper around SELECT INTO OUTFILE. It is designed for high-performance applications on very large data sizes, where speed matters a lot. It takes advantage of multiple CPUs and disks to dump your data much faster.
