Syntax

int mysql_query(MYSQL * mysql,
                const char * query);
  • mysql - a mysql handle, which was previously allocated by mysql_init() or mysql_real_connect().
  • query -a null terminated string containing the statement to be performed.

Description

Performs a statement pointed to by the null terminate string query against the database. Contrary to mysql_real_query(), mysql_query() is not binary safe.

Returns zero on success, non zero on failure

For executing multi statements the statements within the null terminated string statements must be separated by a semicolon.

If your statement contains binary data you should use mysql_real_query() or escape your data with mysql_hex_string().

To determine if a statement returned a result set use the function mysql_num_fields().
