Update README to clarify how to install gem with support for databases with more than 256 columns #14

wants to merge 6 commits into from

2 participants


No description provided.


Two issues with this:

1) It needs to be rebased against master.
2) The README explanation should be changed so that mentions result sets with over 256 columns. The current wording with "databases" is not accurate.

Once those changes are made I can merge this. Thanks!

Anyway, should be fine now I think?


This doesn't appear to be rebased against master. Also, the README text mentions table instead of result set. It works fine with a table with 256 columns, as long as you don't select more than 256 columns. Also, you can still run into issues with tables less than 256 columns, by selecting expressions or joining tables. I'll just cherry-pick the necessary commit and modify it. Thanks.
