New mysql.lsp module working too for 64-bit newLISP/MySQL

Lutz on Tue Apr 28 19:57:16 2009 #

A new mysql.lsp here:


will work on 32-bit newLISP as well as 64-bit newLISP and will also work on MySQL v.5.0 and 5.1. The old mysql5.lsp and mysql51.lsp will be eliminated. The new mysql.lsp may also work on 4.x versions, but I haven't tried.

The modules crypto.lsp and zlib.lsp have also been tested on 64-bit newLISP and do not need any changes, except for adding the appropiate library paths.
