hello - i see this topic was partially covered in an earlier post:

https://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/4411532

specifically, i am using mysql and am coming from a php environment
where i learned to love PDO.   the most important point of pdo is the
use of DBI "context variables" rather than the error-prone use of
question-marks embedded in a query.

many people seem to recommend "sequel".  is this something more geared
for the micro$oft database, or is sequel truly generic in nature,
working equally well with all databases?

thank you all very much.
