I am using Paul Dubois' book on MySql and attempting to load the
configuration from ".my.cnf".
I called load_defaults as illustrated in the book but the argv array is
empty except for argv. I'm mystified. Also just prior to the call to
load_defaults, there was a call to my_init. Both funcs are not
documented in the manuals either. What do they do?
Also what's does mysql_options do? I tried to use it thinking that it
would use the .my.cnf file to populate the MYSQL struct. The struct was
empty after the call and in any case, I think I shouln't be going behind
Please help. I'm using Redhat 6.0 and mysql v3.22.
