= MySQL/Ruby Interface
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 <tt>libMySQL.dll</tt> 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.
