Ruby and SQL Queries


#1

Hi all,
I am new to Ruby ( and to Miscrosft SQL). I want to be able to do very
basic queries from ruby to a external MS SQL databse. I have searched
through the web and it seems you have to jump through hoops to get ruby
to talk to a SQL database.

  1. Install freedts

  2. Install sqlrelay

  3. ??

I installed freedts, but I am having problems install sqlrelay (gentoo).
Is there a easier way to do quieries in Ruby?

Thanks,
Otter

On windows using the 1 click installer ruby-dbi comes installed by
default with ODBC drivers and you can access MS-SQL that way without
installing anything.
