    1. from the page seems DBD::ADO or DBD::ODBC are appropriate. Try to
    download and read the docs that are supposed to be there, even reading
    sources is quite useful ;-) I've found that ruby sources tend to be
    quite readable (except for code-golfing ;-)

    2. try: http://ruby-pdf.rubyforge.org/pdf-writer/

    Disclaimer: I haven't tried anything from above ;-)
