Copying database


What is the proper mySQL command to use for copying tables beginning with a specific prefix from one database to another on the same database server?

Something like from a bash prompt (untested):
mysqldump --opt --databases dbname1 --tables $(echo 'show tables' | mysql world | grep 'tbl_prefix.*') | mysql dbname2
