I'm trying to do something like the following with sqlite3:

message_num = '1'

message_text = "This won't work"

db = SQLite3::Database.new('/tmp/test.db')

db.execute( "INSERT INTO table VALUES('#{message_num}', '# 
{message_text}');" )

The above query fails because the single quote in message_text isn't  
escaped.  In my actual script, message_text is part of a huge hash  
fed in by another process.  I thought about double quoting # 
{message_text} in the SQL but that chokes if message_text contains  
double quotes.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Ryan
