An Interface to the Popular MySQL Database Server for Python
MySQLdb is an interface to the popular MySQL database server for
Python. The design goals are:
- Compliance with the Python database API version 2.0
- Thread-friendliness (threads will not block each other)
- Compatibility with MySQL-3.23 and later
This module should be mostly compatible with an older interface written
by Joe Skinner and others. However, the older version is a) not
thread-friendly, b) written for MySQL 3.21, and c) apparently not
actively maintained. No code from that version is used in MySQLdb.
MySQLdb is free software.
