Output to mysql db

Hello,

Very new to Ruby and I’m curious if this is possible…

I have the following code which is returning a chunk of html that I
want.

Right now, all it does is print to the screen. Is it possible to have
the outputted chunk of html placed in a mysql db record? If so, can
anyone recommend some starting resources or examples.

Thanks!

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require ‘hpricot’
require ‘open-uri’

doc = Hpricot(open(“some_url”))

doc.search(‘dir’).each do | element |
puts “#{element.inner_html}”
end

Try ActiveRecord it’s part of Ruby on Rails :
http://rubyonrails.org/api/classes/ActiveRecord/Base.html

There’s some good examples in the Ruby Cookbook:
