I looked at page yesterday too, but found out only following: there are two ways of how to configure mysql database for connections: - you can use unix sockets (connection thru files - faster one) - connection thru TCP/IP Now let's expect you can't afford buying /Command version and so connect thru some native library or /ODBC, so you are left with /Core and TCP/IP connection or Unix sockets as described above. So - is let's say TCP/IP connection described anywhere? It has to use some kind of text based protocol. The question is what form MySQL returns record set in and how time-consuming parsing/decoding would be. Maybe even connection thru sockets would not be so difficult to achieve? Regards, -pekr-
