You can go to http://ruby-dbi.sourceforge.net/ to download the package, as
it doesn't come bundled with the Ruby One-Click Installer for Windows.
Installation isn't too bad. Just follow the documentation that comes with
the package...

Subject: gems for DBI and MySQL?


My apologies for incorrectly posting this on my first try.
I'm reposting it to it's own thread.

I need to access a MySQL database from Ruby.
I'm running under Windows using the one-click installer.
Is DBI the preferred way to do that?

If so, what do I need to install that doesn't come bundled in the one-click
installer?  DBI?  Ruby MySQL driver?

Are there gems for those or do I need to install them the old fashioned way?
