What's the loweset level between database and ruby

What's the lowest abstraction barrier between the database and ruby?
Where are the files with the instructions on translating ruby commands
to actual database queries for the particular database you've set up?

Thanks for any help

There's several bits to that. the responsability is shared between the
connection adapter ( in active_record/lib/connection_adapters) and
variety of bits of activerecord (a lot of that is in base.rb)

So if someone wanted to add a database that rails could connect to,
what
files would they need to create?

You'd need a new connection adapter
