    Hi

    Well, I've heard something about this, there is a MySQL C API.
    Check out this link: http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/C.html

    I don't know any more details, but some people say it could be slow sometimes and a little bit unreliable too (I don't know if it's true).

    Anyway try it, you have nothing to lose. It comes with the mysql package.
    Best Regards,

    Bill

    *sigh* Another very heavy & clumsy api. From personal experience, it works OK; or more to the point it's slow & clunky but fairly solid. Like a diesel Volvo going up hill on a cold day. On the upside, it is only a tiny bit more complicated than the Perl DBI interface. And like that interface you're just sending a lot of sprintf() formatted strings to the interpreter & grabbing the results from an array of pointers.
