    help using mysql

    hey all,

    i need to write an aplication in C that connects a mysql database.

    I want to try compile it both on windows and linux (debian)...

    do i only need the mysql.h file and thats it?
    From what i read i think i need to install a developer library...

    the mysql manual says that the C connector is distributed with mysql... i checkd on mysql folder and i didnt found it...

    can anybody tell me the standard procedure?

    thx in advance

    Yes, you need some libraries as well if you want to produce an executable file.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Same place as you got the mysql.h probably.

    For Linux environment, the required libraries are provided by the source package of MySQL application (libmysqclient.a for example) As I know the RPM package does not include the libraries and I don't know any idea about the .DEB package!

    For Windows environment, I also could not find the required libraries (but did not make a good search actually!)
