"struct Command" should not be used. It is old, and a bad
design. This new release attempts to replace it with a better
design. Hopefully, "struct Command" will be deleted in a later
The "exec" functions are for commands like INSERT, UPDATE,
DELETE, CREATE, etc (it is *not* for SELECT). It is for things
that do NOT return actual rows of data. The "exec" functions
return "rows affected" - the number of rows that were affected
by your INSERT, or UPDATE, etc. Usually people ignore that
number, but it's information the server sends back, and is
sometimes useful to some people. For example, SQL
administration tools usually tell you "# rows affected" after
you run an INSERT/UPDATE/etc.
If you are doing a SELECT, then you do NOT use "exec", you use
"query" for SELECT. "query" returns a set of rows.
SELECT: Use query() or querySet() or queryRow(), etc.
INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE/CREATE/DROP: Use exec(). Return value
tells you how many rows were added/changed/deleted/etc.
Plz add this mention to readme.
