I have never used mySQL because perl's Storable or BerkeleyDB modules
always did me fine for cgi stuff.  I am going to be learning rails, so I
supposed I will have to learn mySQL anyway, but I was wondering: is it
exclusively web based, or could I use it to produce database files for
use in a (non web app) ruby script?

If not, is there a ruby equivalent to something nice and simple like
Storable?
