Basically, a user either uses the command line mysql or a mysql-enabled program
to do anything with mysql. Right now, I'm developing a mysql client program
in Java using the Mysql JDBC driver. You can do stuff in Perl and C/C++ to
with the right libraries/Perl modules. I'm also using the PHP3 mysql package
to create dynamic web pages that access mysql data.
Read the manual in /usr/doc/mysql. Create a sample table and load some data
into it. Run some SQL queries. Setting up permissions is tricky. If you need
any more help, or anything I've said is unclear, feel free to mail me.
