I'm looking for something equivelant to the perl modules:
Net::Server.

It's rather complete as a server.
Not sure what comparable items might be available for Ruby.

I'm putting something together in Perl because that's what I know best,
but I
would like to port it to Ruby.  It's based on a postgresql DBI interface
and a
Net::Server::PreFork interface.

suggestions?

This is frustrating.
I installed the debian package for ruby dbi but there's nothing in the
'ri'
docs.  Is this a part of the stdlib?

http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/
doesn't give much useful information in the docs.
just a list of methods under dbm with no examples, format, args, words
of any
kind...

ugh?

No. Ruby's DBI is a separate project and not part of the Ruby stdlib.
ri documentation is also not typically updated. I find that debian
packages are usually out of date and the DBI team has just recently
had a new release. See:

  http://ruby-dbi.rubyforge.org/

It works very similarly to Perl's DBI module.
