The C API is documented in the MySQL manual:
Take a look at chapter 18.
By the way, C is case sensitive. The call is mysql_real_connect(),
Also, I suggest you grab a source distribution of MySQL, even if you
don't care about installing it. You can take a look at the standard
MySQL clients (mysql, mysqladmin, mysqlshow, mysqldump, etc.) to see
how the C API is used in real programs.
