Very good. I also downloaded the 6.4.2 source and will try to compile it.
Too bad there isn't a diff file at your location, but if I fail, I will
install the binary, for sure.

Thanks for the information, but there is something very obscure to me, they
ARE binaries for cygwin32 :
"MySQL 3.22.10 clients compiled with the cygwin32 kit. This includes
'mysql' with readline editing capabilities. " and a link to
I downloaded it, here is the content :

Which seems to mean that the mySQL DLL was succesfully built (how ??), and
linked or added to the original cygwin1.dll ? If it's true, it may remove
my coolview support, am I wrong ?
Furthermore, you have to get a license to use it officialy.

I do not know if I'll be able to use it with Perl built for cygwin ? If I
compile a DBI module for MySQL within my cygwin perl context, the DLL
formats won't match I guess.
