22.6. MySQL Connector/C

What is MySQL Connector/C?

MySQL Connector/C is a C client library for client/server communication. It is a standalone replacement for the MySQL Client Library shipped with the MySQL Server.

Why have a replacement for MySQL Client Library?

There is no need to compile or install the MySQL Server package if you only need the client library.

MySQL Connector/C does not rely on the MySQL Server release cycle, so bug fixes and new features are released more often.

MySQL Connector/C API documentation is available here Section 22.9.3, “C API Function Descriptions”.

Supported platforms include:

  • Windows

  • Windows x64

  • Linux

  • Solaris

  • FreeBSD

  • Mac OS X

  • HP-UX

  • IBM AIX

  • IBM i5/OS
