could somebody tell me if mysql is better than sql?
you are comparing two different things....SQL is standard language to communicate database...MYSQL is database vendor which provides database (RDMS) to us..vendor follows standards to provide the access to database..ANSII standizes the SQL..so vendors follow these standards..
SQL (Structured Query Language) is a standardised language for databases and MySQL is a DBMS (database management system). So, they are different. MySQL use the SQL standard for managing databases
MySQL is the system but SQL is the language
