How to call a mysql stored procedure, with arguments, from command line?

How can I call a stored procedure from command line?

I have a procedure:

CREATE DEFINER=`root`@`localhost` PROCEDURE `insertEvent`(IN `dateTimeIN` DATETIME)
NO SQL
BEGIN
SET @eventIDOut = NULL;

IF EXISTS(SELECT * FROM `events` WHERE `eventDate` = dateTimeIN) THEN
SELECT `eID` INTO @eventIDOut FROM `events` WHERE `eventDate` = dateTimeIN LIMIT 1;
ELSE
INSERT INTO `events` (`eventDate`) VALUES(dateTimeIN);
SET @eventIDOut = last_insert_id();
END IF;

SELECT CONCAT(@eventIDOut);
END



  1. I tried this:
    mysql> CALL insertEvent(2012.01.01 12:12:12);


    Result:

    ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the
    manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right
    syntax to use near '.01 12:12:12)' at line 1

  2. And this:
    mysql> CALL insertEvent


    -> 2012.01.01 12:12:12;


    Result:

    ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '2012.01.01 12:12:12' at line 2


Answer

With quotes around the date:

mysql> CALL insertEvent('2012.01.01 12:12:12');
