1 # mysql: bindings to the mysqlclient library
2
3 This library is a Haskell binding to the MySQL `mysqlclient` client
4 library. It is a fairly faithful, low level library that implements

5 most of the MySQL client API. The major departure from the C API is
6 that in Haskell, resource management is mostly automatic and safe.

23 * Add support for prepared statements. The prepared statement API is
24 huge and of dubious performance value, so it's not currently a
25 priority for us. Patches welcome!
