To use the module the basic program should include the file mysql.bas. To do this the program should contain the line
somewhere at the start of the code. Note that there are no double quote characters before and after the file name. This tells the interpreter that the include file is located in a module include directory. This include file contains all the declarations that are needed to use the MySQL functions.
The program using the module should call the functions declared in the include file. The binary library file is loaded when the first function call is executed.
