Several examples in this document are only code snippets, not
complete programs. These snippets provide a brief overview on the
API. For complete programs, check the
directory of your Connector/C++ installation Please also read the
README file in that directory. To test the
example code, edit the
examples.h file in the
examples directory to add your connection
information, then rebuild the code by issuing a
