This is the source or binary distribution of ODBC for 
MySQL. This software is distributed under General Public 
License (GPL). For more information, read the file
"COPYING" that comes along with this distribution.

As a special exception to the MyODBC GPL license, one 
is allowed to use MyODBC with any ODBC manager, even 
if the ODBC manager is not GPL. In other words: The 
ODBC manager itself is not affected by the MyODBC 
GPL license.

MySQL, the most popular Open Source SQL database, is 
provided by MySQL AB. MySQL AB is a commercial company 
that builds its business providing services around the 
MySQL database.

MySQL provides the support for ODBC by means of MyODBC 
and MyODB 3.51 programs. MyODBC 3.51 is the ODBC driver 
for MySQL which is ODBC 3.5x compliant and MyODBC is 
2.5x compliant.

If you want to ensure the development of this product, you 
should register for MySQL support and tell that you are 
using MyODBC 3.51 in the comment field!

The setup32 binary distribution may be obtained from the 
file myodbc-xxx.zip at http://www.mysql.com/

To get all functionality from the ODBC 3.51 driver (like 
transaction support) you should use it against MySQL 
3.23.36 or above. This driver also works with MySQL 3.20.x

To compile MyODBC 3.51 on Windows, you need Microsoft 
VC++ and 'nmake' along with the latest MDAC. For more 
information on how to build the driver, refer to 'INSTALL' 
file or online MyODBC FAQ documents.

You must link MyODBC to a MySQL 4.0 client library for it to work!

MySQL, MyODBC, MyODBC 3.51 is brought to you by the MySQL 
team at MySQL AB, and MySQL is the trademark of MySQL AB.
