What is MySQL?

I know what a DB is. I use and program in Paradox's ObjectPal. I understand Relational DB.s.

I like the idea of open source.

I run multiple queries based on tables with lot of calculations and stored variables and then place those variables in a table placed on a report which is update each time I run the program. I'm not sure but I believe that MySQL will accomplish this.

What about designing reports, forms, quaries, tables. Are they linear coded or object coded?

Is there a good book, not just on the theory, but the syntax also?

I see free download and then lots of licensing information.

I simply want to create programs for myself?

I see alot of talk about servers. Where is the data I use stored? I suppose my hard drive. Why then, or do I need server access?

Gosh, there must be a thousand questions I have. I looked in the Newbie forum but there are no answers to these kinds of questions.

Thanks . . . Rick
