Mysql-python 1.2.5 Description:
mysql-python is an open source, multiplatform and free library software implemented in C, Python and Zope, designed from the ground up to act as a Python DB API-2.0-compliant interface to the popular MySQL database engine. The project’s design goals include compliance with the 2.0 version of the Python database API (see PEP-249 for details), thread-safety, as well as thread-friendliness. The library has been engineered to support MySQL and MariaDB database servers from version 3.23 through 5.5, as well as Python 2.4 through 2.7. At the moment, support for Python 3 is missing, but the developers promise that it will be added in upcoming versions of the library. To install and use the mysql-python library on your GNU/Linux system, you must download the source code, save the archive on a location of your choice, unpack it with your favorite archive manager tool, open a terminal emulator and navigate to the location of the extracted archive files using the ‘cd’ command.
