To be able to debug a MySQL client with the integrated debug package,
you should configure MySQL with
shell> MYSQL_DEBUG=d:t:O,/tmp/client.trace shell> export MYSQL_DEBUG
This causes clients to generate a trace file in `/tmp/client.trace'.
If you have problems with your own client code, you should attempt to
connect to the server and run your query using a client that is known to
work. Do this by running
shell> mysql --debug=d:t:O,/tmp/client.trace
This will provide useful information in case you mail a bug report. 2.3 How to report bugs or problems.
If your client crashes at some 'legal' looking code, you should check that your `mysql.h' include file matches your mysql library file. A very common mistake is to use an old `mysql.h' file from an old MySQL installation with new MySQL library.
