Application Programming Interfaces

This section is for application programming interfaces (APIs) for MySQL. An API is used by popular programming languages to connect to MySQL for manipulating data. It allows developers to make for an easier to use and customized front-end for non-technical end-users. To begin with, we have written documentation on the Perl DBI. We will soon add the C API and the PHP API.



This section is still being set up, but it contains documentation on the C API, used by the C programming language to interface with MySQL.

Perl DBI

This section deals with the Perl DBI used as an interface between MySQL and the programming language Perl.


This section contains documentation on the PHP API, used by the PHP programming language to interface with MySQL.
