How to connect C++ program to MariaDB

Went through the Connector/C installation and documentation. Ironically the one thing that's missing is HOW to connect a C++ program to MariaDB. No clue.

Running mysql_affected_rows.c (in the examples folder), I get: "fatal error: mysql.h: No such file or directory". Paths weren't set up during installation, and again, there's no clue how to do it!

After searching, I find mysql.h in /usr/include/mysql. I can only assume there will be a similar problem when linking.

My question is: How are the paths set up to compile, link, and connect to MariaDB? Also what libraries need to be linked?

Thanks, Alan
