Aehm, that's actually what I wanted. Windows MySQL binaries (because I
want MySQl running as a Windows service) and Cygwin programming
environment (more precisely Eclipse). I have seen it before somewhere on
the web without MinGW, but I can't find the link anymore.
I can see only 2 alternatives: either transfering libmysql.lib into an
.a library (creating a .def file with impdef and then an .a file with
dlltool; but I don't really know if the mysql++ build script works with
that), or compiling a Unix source MySQL just for the sake of the libraries.
Is that true?
