An enhanced MySQL database driver. With support for async operations and threaded database access.


gem build mysqlplus.gemspec

on OSX with the default mysql installed:

  sudo gem install mysqlplus-0.1.0.gem -- --with-mysql-config

on OSX, with mysql installed by macports:

  sudo gem install mysqlplus-0.1.0.gem -- --with-mysql-config=/opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin/mysql_config

on OSX, with x86 mysql (NOT x86_64!) installed from

  sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386" gem install mysqlplus-0.1.0.gem -- \
    --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql \
    --with-mysql-lib=/usr/local/mysql/lib \


to use within rails
add require 'mysqlplus' to the top of environment.rb
this instantiates the Mysql class that you can use.
and it will automagically use async_query instead of query, so it's a drop in replacement.

Same with other scripts that want to use it--just require 'mysqlplus' BEFORE you require 'mysql' and it will 
load the asynchronous version, then ignore the sequent require 'mysql' call.


Aman Gupta, for help in threading support and improved tests Tomita Masahiro–since this is a fork of his already excellent mysql lib []. Roger Pack, for helping in the file descriptor hunt :) Lourens Naude for 1.9 integration help.
