I have MySQL version 5.0.84 on linux slackware 13.0 32-bit.
I am working with a relatively new API written in a programming
language with a small user base (newlisp). The newlisp API imports a
number of C API functions from the system MySQL shared object.
If I were to issue a count(*) query from my monitor
mysql> select count(*) from clients;
| count(*) |
| 16 |
If "select count(*) from clients" is issued from the newlisp API, is
there a a C API function that would return '16'?
I have reviewed
and haven't been enlightened so far.
I believe that I could parse the results as a string, but
if I could access count(*) as a C function, it would be
I have a background in C.
