Syntax

MYSQL * mysql_init(MYSQL * mysql);

mysql - a pointer to MYSQL or NULL. In case of passing a NULL pointer mysql_init() will allocate memory and return a pointer to a MYSQL structure.

Description

Prepares and initializes a MYSQL structure to be used with mysql_real_connect().

If mysql_thread_init() was not called before, mysql_init() will also initialize the thread subsystem for the current thread.

Any subsequent calls to any mysql function (except mysql_options()) will fail until mysql_real_connect() was called. Memory allocated by mysql_init() must be freed with mysql_close().
