MYSQL_CLIENT_TEST(1)	    MariaDB Database System	  MYSQL_CLIENT_TEST(1)

       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:

       o   --help, -?

	   Display a help message and exit.

       o   --basedir=dir_name, -b dir_name

	   The base directory for the tests.

       o   --count=count, -t count

	   The number of times to execute the tests.

       o   --database=db_name, -D db_name

	   The database	to use.

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

	   Write a debugging log if MariaDB is built with debugging support.
	   The default debug_options value is

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

	   Option to use for testing bugs in the getopt	library.

       o   --host=host_name, -h	host_name

	   Connect to the MariaDB server on the	given host.

       o   --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

       o   --port=port_num, -P port_num

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

       o   --server-arg=arg, -A	arg

	   Argument to send to the embedded server.

       o   --show-tests, -T

	   Show	all test names.

       o   --silent, -s

	   Be more silent.

       o   --socket=path, -S path

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

       o   --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.

       o   --user=user_name, -u	user_name

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

       o   -v dir_name,	--vardir=dir_name

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