= SQLite3/Ruby Interface



This module allows Ruby programs to interface with the SQLite3
database engine (  You must have the
SQLite engine installed in order to build this module.

Note that this module is NOT compatible with SQLite 2.x.

== Compilation and Installation

Simply do the following, after installing SQLite3:

  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-ruby

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-ruby -- --with-sqlite3-include=/opt/local/include \

Also, the gem ships with the C source-code pre-built, so (as of version 1.1.1)
you no longer need to have SWIG installed. However, if you have SWIG installed
and you want to generate the C file yourself, you can specify the
<code>--with-swig</code> option.
