22.5. MySQL C++ API

MySQL++ is a MySQL API for C++. Warren Young has taken over this project. More information can be found at http://www.mysql.com/products/mysql++/.

22.5.1. Borland C++

You can compile the MySQL Windows source with Borland C++ 5.02. (The Windows source includes only projects for Microsoft VC++, for Borland C++ you have to do the project files yourself.)

One known problem with Borland C++ is that it uses a different structure alignment than VC++. This means that you run into problems if you try to use the default libmysql.dll libraries (that were compiled using VC++) with Borland C++. To avoid this problem, only call mysql_init() with NULL as an argument, not a pre-allocated MYSQL structure.
