I'm using ruby on rails for a web application that will take text from a xml-web page, parse it, and return it to the user as a formatted file. I only need read access to the xml, not write. How do I setup a ruby on rails application so that, rather than the default settings for mysql, it knows to look at the xml web page?
I know this is possible in php, python, etc., but I'd like to use rails, as I'm most familiar withit.
Specifically, I will be taking text from wikitravel.org, and the xml page (for example) is http://wikitravel.org/en/Special:Export/Turkey
