mySQL client without PERL - MySQL

Easy questions, I think. Goal: Write data from a PC/104 data-collection system to a mySQL database via TCP/IP.

    Default mySQL client without PERL

    Easy questions, I think.

    Goal:
    Write data from a PC/104 data-collection system to a mySQL database via
    TCP/IP.

    Details:
    I need to load a mySQL client on an embedded (Compulab i686 PC/104)
    Linux system. The Linux version is "Guiness" which is Red Hat 7.0. Due
    to the limited "disk" space on the i686, the latest PERL dist won't
    load (too big) on the PC/104 system. The mySQL client I plan to use is
    5.0.27.


    So, some questions:

    Is there a mySQL client that doesn't utilize PERL?

    or, perhaps,

    Is there a "stripped-down" version of PERL that will provide only the
    minimum necessary requirements for the mySQL client?


    or, perhaps there's a better way to proceed that I haven't thought of.

    You don't have to use mysql protocol. You could use http(s) and a small

    There's no need to use Perl at all if all you want is a MySQL client.
    MySQL comes with a C library that serves as a client. In fact, this is
    the library that is used by the Perl DBD::mysql driver. So you'd need
    the MySQL client library on a client host even if you did use Perl. But
    you can use the client library directly from C code.

    See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/c.html for docs on the MySQL
    C API.
