    Unanswered: differences between mysql.exe file in c:/mysql/bin

    There are lots of 'em.
    i guess one is good for performance, other for small user group etc..

    But is there a document that explains which of 'em should be used when?

    mysql.exe
    mysqld.exe
    mysql-nt.exe
    ...
    etc.....

    Re: differences between mysql.exe file in c:/mysql/bin

    From the MySQL documentation:
    Binary          Description
    mysqld           Compiled with full debugging and automatic memory allocation checking, symbolic links, and InnoDB and BDB tables.
    mysqld-opt    Optimized binary. From version 4.0 on, InnoDB is enabled. Before 4.0, this server includes no transactional table support.
    mysqld-nt       Optimized binary for NT/2000/XP with support for named pipes.
    mysqld-max       Optimized binary with support for symbolic links, and InnoDB and BDB tables.
    mysqld-max-nt    Like mysqld-max, but compiled with support for named pipes.
