2.5 Building Connector/C Applications

To build C applications that use Connector/C, the connector must be installed. If you need to do that first, see Section 2.4, “Installing Connector/C”.

For instructions on building 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 Connector/C, specify the appropriate compile-time options, as indicated in that section.

For binary distributions, the docs/INFO_BIN file contains information about the build environment used to compile Connector/C. This may help you select compatible tools for compiling client applications.
