The following is a list of the creators of the libraries we have included with the MySQL server source to make it easy to compile and install MySQL. We are very thankfully to all individuals that have created these and it has made our life much easier.

  • Richard A. O'Keefe

    For his public domain string library.

  • Henry Spencer

    For his regex library, used in WHERE column REGEXP regexp.

  • Chris Provenzano

    Portable user level pthreads. From the copyright: This product includes software developed by Chris Provenzano, the University of California, Berkeley, and contributors. We are currently using version 1_60_beta6 patched by Monty (see mit-pthreads/Changes-mysql).

  • Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler

    For the zlib library (used on MySQL on Windows).

  • Bjorn Benson

    For his safe_malloc (memory checker) package which is used in when you configure MySQL with --debug.
