Where is the documentation?

I installed mysql on a vms system. I just want to use it to access data on an instrument that uses my sql for communications. Can I do that? Do I need to run the server on the VMS system to do that?

Where is your MySQL database server?
If you want to access a remote database from VMS, you only need the client part.
You can use the verb mysql to connect to you remote database.
example:
Code:
$ mysql -uuser -ppassword -hnode mydb

use mysql --help for more option.

Again MySQL on OpenVMS is just like MySQL on another platform.
