       mysql_client_test - test client API
       mysql_client_test_embedded - test client API for embedded server


       mysql_client_test [options] [test_name] ...

       mysql_client_test_embedded [options] [test_name] ...


       The mysql_client_test program is used for testing aspects of the MariaDB client API that
       cannot be tested using mysqltest and its test language.  mysql_client_test_embedded is
       similar but used for testing the embedded server. Both programs are run as part of the
       test suite.

       The source code for the programs can be found in in tests/mysql_client_test.c in a source
       distribution. The program serves as a good source of examples illustrating how to use
       various features of the client API.

       mysql_client_test is used in a test by the same name in the main tests suite of but may also be run directly. Unlike the other programs listed here, it
       does not read an external description of what tests to run. Instead, all tests are coded
       into the program, which is written to cover all aspects of the C language API.

       mysql_client_test supports the following options:

       ·   --help, -?

           Display a help message and exit.

       ·   --basedir=dir_name, -b dir_name

           The base directory for the tests.

       ·   --count=count, -t count

           The number of times to execute the tests.

       ·   --database=db_name, -D db_name

           The database to use.

       ·   --debug[=debug_options], -#[debug_options]

           Write a debugging log if MariaDB is built with debugging support. The default
           debug_options value is ´d:t:o,/tmp/mysql_client_test.trace´.

       ·   --getopt-ll-test=option, -g option

           Option to use for testing bugs in the getopt library.

       ·   --host=host_name, -h host_name

           Connect to the MariaDB server on the given host.

       ·   --password[=password], -p[password]

           The password to use when connecting to the server. If you use the short option form
           (-p), you cannot have a space between the option and the password. If you omit the
           password value following the --password or -p option on the command line, you are
           prompted for one.

       ·   --port=port_num, -P port_num

           The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

       ·   --server-arg=arg, -A arg

           Argument to send to the embedded server.

       ·   --show-tests, -T

           Show all test names.

       ·   --silent, -s

           Be more silent.

       ·   --socket=path, -S path

           The socket file to use when connecting to localhost (which is the default host).

       ·   --testcase, -c

           The option is used when called from, so that mysql_client_test may
           optionally behave in a different way than if called manually, for example by skipping
           some tests. Currently, there is no difference in behavior but the option is included
           in order to make this possible.

       ·   --user=user_name, -u user_name

           The MariaDB user name to use when connecting to the server.

       ·   -v dir_name, --vardir=dir_name

           The data directory for tests. The default is mysql-test/var.
