    Exclamation problem when calling mysql.h

    Hi! I have a prolem with include header for mysql "mysql.h". I use OS linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I know where are headers for database mysql. In directory
    my simple source in c++:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <mysql>
    int main(){
    cout << "Hello world" << endl; return 0;
    Error is:
     skripte/primer_mysql001.cpp:3:17: error: mysql: No such file or directory
    what is wrong with such a simple example.
    Thanx for answer.

    Your include file is "mysql.h" not "mysql" you need to add the proper extension. You may also need to specify the correct subdirectory: <mysql/mysql.h>.

    Don't forget to link with the correct library or you will get other errors when trying to compile.

    Btw, you are having problems including mysql.h, not calling. Proper terminology is important.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
