Hello,

Very new to Ruby and I'm curious if this is possible....

I have the following code which is returning a chunk of html that I
want.

Right now, all it does is print to the screen.  Is it possible to have
the outputted chunk of html placed in a mysql db record?  If so, can
anyone recommend some starting resources or examples.

Thanks!


#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require 'hpricot'
require 'open-uri'

doc = Hpricot(open("some_url"))

doc.search('dir').each do | element |
  puts "#{element.inner_html}"
end
