This is the MySQL API module for Ruby. It provides the same functions for Ruby programs that the MySQL C API provides for C programs.
This package is offered as gem for easy installation using RubyGems. It wraps unmodified tmtm's mysql-ruby extension into a proper gem.
Please note that tmtm (Tomita Mashahiro) has deprecated development of this extension and only update it for bug fixes.
Warning about incompatible MySQL versions under Windows
Mixing MySQL versions will generate segmentation faults.
Running the binary version of this gem against a different version of MySQL shared library libMySQL.dll will generate segmentation faults and terminate your application.
Please use the exact same MAJOR.MINOR version of MySQL, see History.txt for specific version of MySQL used to build the binaries.
