MySQL’s popularity has brought a flood of questions about how to solve specific problems, and that's where this Cookbook is essential. Designed as a handy resource when you need quick solutions or techniques, the book offers dozens of short, focused pieces of code and hundreds of worked-out examples for programmers of all levels who don't have the time (or expertise) to solve MySQL problems from scratch.

This third edition has been updated to cover new APIs in Python and PHP, as well as powerful new features in MySQL 5.6 and older versions still in common use. Recipes use the mysql client program as well as Java, Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby APIs.
