        <para>
          For the effort to make a shareware SQL database. At TcX, the
          predecessor of MySQL AB, we started with
          <literal>mSQL</literal>, but found that it couldn't satisfy
          our purposes so instead we wrote an SQL interface to our
          application builder Unireg. <command>mysqladmin</command> and
          <command>mysql</command> client are programs that were largely
          influenced by their <literal>mSQL</literal> counterparts. We
          have put a lot of effort into making the MySQL syntax a
          superset of <literal>mSQL</literal>. Many of the API's ideas
          are borrowed from <literal>mSQL</literal> to make it easy to
          port free <literal>mSQL</literal> programs to the MySQL API.
          The MySQL software doesn't contain any code from
          <literal>mSQL</literal>. Two files in the distribution
          (<filename>client/insert_test.c</filename> and
          <filename>client/select_test.c</filename>) are based on the
          corresponding (non-copyrighted) files in the
          <literal>mSQL</literal> distribution, but are modified as
          examples showing the changes necessary to convert code from
          <literal>mSQL</literal> to MySQL Server.
