Ruby mysql windows


#1

I’ve been googling for this for hours now.
Does anyone know how to get Ruby to talk to a MySql database on Windows.
Some instructions would be nice.
A tutorial would be paradise.

Thanks

Bob

None of that looks promising?

Here’s a Rails tute that starts with installing MySQL etc on Windows:

might be what you need.

As often happens, just asking the question prompts a different way to
look at things and the question is answered.

A combination of downloading a file from here
http://www.vandomburg.net/pages/mysql-ruby-windows

and then following the instructions here
http://www.rubywizard.net/ruby-mysql.html

has got me started.

The links on that Google search page lead to pages that are quite old.
They , in turn, lead to pages that dont exist.
Getting mysql to work with Rails is not a problem.
But I’m working on building a Ruby front end to a mysql back end ( not a
web app)
