They did say I could make my own library but I would be on my own as they do not support dos any more.
The Linux interface works a treat I just wish I could get the dos machines to work the same way.
Maybe I am asking to much of dos in this project.
I give more details:
libmysqlclient.lib (DOS Library connector for CPP) Work from DOS 7.xx and later because the older version doesn't have a 32Bit protected area.
Anyway you cant use it , you not have enough memory, CPU is 16Bit and you need 32bit CPU (Intel 386DX or Higher )
The one think you can its only one:
Use like terminal with telnet client , Make a good program with freebasic , let him work under command line with simple text GUI, that make a sistem stable, fast, and with good efficency.
Until the hardware change I Dont know a better way.
I can give you a source for a simple function with FreeBASIC for work with MySQL Server ( the code work in Windows and Linux too without modify )
