I'm trying to restore an old wallet, using bitcoin-qt 0.21 but I'm getting the following error on startup: wallet.dat corrupt. Try using the wallet tool bitcoin-wallet to salvage or restoring a backup

What tool is this? I have tried googling it. Thanks!

bitcoin-wallet is a tool distributed along with Bitcoin Core. The package contains several binaries, including bitcoin-qt, bitcoind, bitcoin-cli, but also a few stand-alone tools like bitcoin-tx and bitcoin-wallet.
