Hi,
I'm a Ruby new-bee and am working on a simple DBI
example.  I just want to get sysdate back from my Oracle
instance and print it to screen.

It seems like I'm connecting successfully but I don't
know how to read the result back properly.  Below is the
code I'm using - any help appreciated.

Regards,

Doug

equire 'dbi'

class Dbitest

attr :today_str


DBI.connect('DBI:Oracle:fqa1', 'my_username', 'my_pwd')
do | dbh |

  puts "getting..."
  sql = "select to_char(sysdate + 1, \'MON-DD-YYYY\')
today_str from dual"
  dbh.prepare(sql) do | sth | 
   # print "#{ sth.execute()}" 
 today_str = sth.execute()

  end 

end

end  #end class

d = Dbitest.new
print "today: #{@today_str}"
