1. MyODBC is a tool for connecting with MySQL, which is a DBMS, not a
front end for other DBMS products.
2. MySQL comes with an excellent manual, and there are plenty of
examples available to help do what MySQL and MyODBC are intended
to do. If you didn't get the manual with MySQL it would be
interesting to know where you downloaded it from.
