Recovering posts from a dead Wordpress blog

Is there an easy way to export Wordpress posts when the admin panel is crashed and I have only command line access?

I accidentally messed up the MySQL database for my Wordpress blog. The posts are all there to read on the blog, but I can't get into the panel (which is now in a "you don't have permissions" state that I don't think I can fix because it's not for one of the usual reasons.)
So I installed a new Wordpress system in a different directory. Now I would like it to grab all the posts from the other Wordpress, either by grabbing it off the database or (preferably) just using some plugin that would extract posts from the Web site.
Is there a good way to do this? Any help much appreciated.
(I'd hook it up to the old MySQL database, but I'm concerned this would put it in the same dead situation.)
