Any of the standard MySQL clients included in the source distribution

Another source of short examples can be found at:

Get the samp_db distribution.

Which examples aren't good?  Which ones show these discrepancies?

Note that the absence of a * doesn't necessarily mean something
is _not_ a pointer.  It might be a typedef.
