    So . . . you want your C program to automate typing commands?

    yeah,
    actually my insert fuction has to take struct-pointer as argument,and
    insert into corresponding columns in the 'channel' table,like this:
    --------------------
    my_error Insert_channel (my_struct* list, int items) // items is the number of list items.
    ------------------------
    eg.
    my_struct abc={
    {1,10,22},
    {0,0,0}
    };
    /*Return :
    my_error
    Input Arguments:
    List (Null terminated structure)
    Items (no of items in the structure)
    -------------------------
    plz reply ...
    thanks.

    And we're supposed to know how your table looks like?

    Code tags, use the [code][/code] tags!
    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.

    Question

    here's my table creation statement:

    Code:
    "create table `channel`(`id` int(11) auto_increment PRIMARY KEY,`frequency` int(11) ,`mod` int(11))";

    So what exactly are you asking that can't be fixed by
    a) reading http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/c.html
    b) trying some of the examples provided
    c) adapting them to refer to your table name and field names
    d) writing a for loop to iterate over your input array to insert data into the table.

    hint:
    Code:
    int mysql_query(MYSQL *mysql, const char *query)
    
    Executes the SQL query pointed to by the null-terminated string query. Normally, the string must consist of a single SQL statement and you should not add a terminating semicolon (‘;’) or \g to the statement.
    If you know SQL and C, the rest is easy! And don'r forget to commit your INSERT !
