To build C applications that use MySQL Connector/C, the connector must be installed. If you need to do that first, see Chapter 5, Installing MySQL Connector/C.
For instructions on building MySQL Connector/C applications, see Building C API Client Programs. To enable your compiler to find the header and library files under the directory where you installed MySQL Connector/C, specify the appropriate compile-time options, as indicated in that section.
For binary distributions, the
file contains information about the build environment used to
compile MySQL Connector/C. This may help you select compatible tools for
compiling client applications.
