I’m just starting out learning Ruby, having come from a PHP background.
I’ve downloaded the latest stable Ruby release, and have also used the
GEM package manager to install Rails, but I’m a little confused about
how I connect Ruby to MySQL?
The only references I can find to a Ruby driver for MySQL call for
compiling, and I (and many other WinXP users, I imagine) don’t have a
copy of Visual C++ with which to do that.
Is there no official supported driver for connecting Ruby to MySQL
Forgive the newbiness of the question, but it’s been bugging me since I
installed Ruby, and given my PHP background, I sort of take being able
to connect to MySQL for granted.
Many thanks for any help!
