= SQLite3/Ruby Interface


This module allows Ruby programs to interface with the SQLite3 database engine (http://www.sqlite.org). You must have the SQLite engine installed in order to build this module.

Note that this module is only compatible with SQLite 3.6.16 or newer.


require "sqlite3"

Open a database

db = SQLite3::Database.new "test.db"

Create a database

rows = db.execute <<-SQL create table numbers ( name varchar(30), val int ); SQL

Execute a few inserts

{ "one" => 1, "two" => 2, }.each do |pair| db.execute "insert into numbers values ( ?, ? )", pair end

Execute inserts with parameter markers

db.execute("INSERT INTO students (name, email, grade, blog) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)", [@name, @email, @grade, @blog])

Find a few rows

db.execute( "select * from numbers" ) do |row| p row end

== Compilation and Installation

Install SQLite3, enabling the option SQLITE_ENABLE_COLUMN_METADATA (see www.sqlite.org/compile.html for details).

Then do the following:

ruby setup.rb config ruby setup.rb setup ruby setup.rb install

Alternatively, you can download and install the RubyGem package for SQLite3/Ruby (you must have RubyGems and SQLite3 installed, first):

gem install sqlite3

If you have sqlite3 installed in a non-standard location, you can specify the location of the include and lib files by doing:

gem install sqlite3 -- --with-sqlite3-include=/opt/local/include \ --with-sqlite3-lib=/opt/local/lib


== OMG! Something has gone wrong! Where do I get help?

The best place to get help is from the {sqlite3-ruby mailing list}[http://groups.google.com/group/sqlite3-ruby] which can be found here:

== I've found a bug! Where do I file it?

Uh oh. After contacting the mailing list, you've found that you've actually discovered a bug. You can file the bug at the {github issues page}[http://github.com/luislavena/sqlite3-ruby/issues] which can be found here:

== Usage

For help figuring out the SQLite3/Ruby interface, check out the SYNOPSIS as well as the RDoc. It includes examples of usage. If you have any questions that you feel should be address in the FAQ, please send them to {the mailing list}[http://groups.google.com/group/sqlite3-ruby]
