libmysql is the official mysql client library that you can use with the mysql binding.
Alternative description: Libmysql is a 6 (six) Megabyte pile of C++ for what is essentially a networking protocol. It will infect all your code with GPL, and is also a blocking API. All in all, a marvelous piece of engineering. Well, you can at least solve the GPL problem with libmariadb, which mostly works, with some exceptions, see mysql_test.lua.
