Python interface to MySQL
MySQLdb is an interface to the popular MySQL database server for Python.
The design goals are:
- Compliance with Python database API version 2.0
- Thread-friendliness (threads will not block each other)
- Compatibility with MySQL 3.23 and up
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, c) apparently
not actively maintained. No code from that version is used in MySQLdb.
