I know this is a Ruby forum, but it has been the most helpful to me in
my attempt at learning to program and what not.
I want to use MySQL and SQL in conjunction with Ruby.
Basically, I’m totally lost with the database stuff. I installed MySQL,
but have no clue where to go from there.
- Is the database already setup after installing, if not, how do I set
it up? Also, from what I’ve read, SQL is a programming language used to
manipulate a database. Where’s a good beginner’s tutorial for this?
- Where do I write SQL? Is there any SQL-specific editor to do this?
I’ve been working on parsing some .CSV file to capture some basic
statistics about it. Now, I want to send these statistics into a
database to store so I can compare multiple .CSV files later on.
Any help is appreciated. Like I said, I’m totally new to databases and
just need to kick start.
