INTRODUCTION
---------------------------------------------------------------


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 files
COPYING and EXCEPTIONS.

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!

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

BUILDING SOURCE
---------------------------------------------------------------

Various README files such as; README.win and README.unix 
contain information regarding building the source code.

INSTALLING BINARY
---------------------------------------------------------------

We recommend installing binary packages using native 
installers. For this provide an msi/exe package for Windows,
pkg for Solaris and OSX, and RPM for Linux. For those who can
not find a native package (either on our web site or 
elsewhere) we provide a tar-ball and/or zip file containing
the binaries.

How one installs the tar-ball binary distribution varies
depending upon the platform, the ODBC vendor, and the admin's
strategy.

The general steps involved are;

1. copy the driver to the system
2. register the driver with systems ODBC

Please visit our online documentation, and your ODBC vendors
documentation for more details.
