13.2 mysql_server_init()

int mysql_server_init(int argc, char **argv, char **groups)

Description

This function initializes the MySQL client library, which must be done before you call any other MySQL function. However, mysql_server_init() is deprecated and you should call mysql_library_init() instead. See Section 7.41, “mysql_library_init()”.

Note

To avoid memory leaks after the application is done using the library (for example, after closing the connection to the server), be sure to call mysql_server_end() (or mysql_library_end()) explicitly. This enables memory managment to be performed to clean up and free resources used by the library. See Section 7.40, “mysql_library_end()”.

Return Values

Zero for success. Nonzero if an error occurred.
