I have been playing with a Ruby tutorial and so far that has focused on
the facilities/functionality of Ruby - and apart from a couple of
misunderstandings, that is going fine.
I would like to now link the tutorials to a database (where I can store
code, tutorial data etc). I am used to using SQL and have knowledge of a
couple of RDBMSs (I have Informix and PostgreSQL installed).
The programming language that I currently use has a generic database
interface and can access a whole raft of databases.
What is the ‘recommended’ database interface route in Ruby? I’m not sure
I want to get into Rails as yet (not until I understand more about Ruby
itself) - so want something that works alongside ‘pure’ Ruby and allows
me to access more that one proprietary SQL database.
