Ruby 1.8.6 problem

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Jeffrey Bowen, Aug 16, 2007.

  1. I've just installed ruby 1.8.6 and my Windows programs
    will not run.

    In fxri
    puts "hi"
    => hi

    In SciTE test.rb contains puts "hi". It's result is
    "The system cannot find the file specified." I get
    this result from all my programs.

    Thank goodness the two big programs I have written run
    on my Linus box's.

    Jeff

    I'm not sure but I wonder whether Windows is adding an extra extension
    to your file, so that it's test.rb.rb or test.rb.txt or something. It
    does that a lot.
