A set of C++ classes for working with the MySQL library.


This is a simple C++ wrapper for working with MySQL... It requires the download of MySQL headers and lib (included with MySQL server here).


A simple example on how to use:

#include "mysqlplus.h"
#include <STDIO.H>
void main()
   sql_connection_c connection( "database", 
           "localhost", "root", "mypassword" );
   sql_query_c query( &connection );
   sql_result_c *sql_result = 0;
   if ( !query.execute( "select * from customers" ) )
      printf( "oops... didn't execute!!\n" );
   sql_result =;
   int n_fields = sql_result->n_fields();
   for ( int idx = 0; idx < n_fields; idx++ )
      sql_field_c sql_field = sql_result->fetch_field( idx );
      printf( "field %d [%s]\n", idx, sql_field.get_name() );
