> Hi François,
> Can you give a bit more context, perhaps? In macirb, are you loading a file with the function or entering it at the prompt? In Xcode, do the queries result from a pure ruby file, or are you doing a ruby call from Obj-C? What libraries/gems are you using to connect to MySQL? Is there an 'eval' call involved in making the queries?
> To be honest, things should be much faster from Xcode, since macruby_deploy will compile all of your ruby sources to .rbo files. The exception would be if your code contains copious use of "eval". It is also possible that you have stumbled on a perf bug (the best kind of bug, IMHO), in which case it would be great if you could reduce the code down to something minimal that other devs could run locally.

Hi Josh,

In macirb, I use:
load "actionAffiche.rb"
461 queries, real time: 11.578257s

In Xcode: 
I use rubygems and mysql macgems
I have one Button and one table with two columns: when I press the button, the function actionAffiche is running. I think that it's a complete minimal example.
461 queries, real time: 64.244236s
Apart MainMenu.xib, all my code is in AppDelegate.rb. I put this file at the end of this mail (Is there a better way?) 

I don't have control on mysql tables since they come from another software.

I am a novice, then you can criticize my code :)
