to use Ruby / Tk (on Win XP) needs to install ActiveState?

  1. it seems the usual way to use Ruby / Tk on Win XP is to install
    ActiveState's ActiveTcl?

    it is quite a huge installation.

    is the other way is to download the Tk source code and compile it
    yourself using Visual Studio or cygwin?

  2. I don't think there is a practical alternative unfortunately. It is
    quite large, but well worth it. I have tried several of the available
    GUI toolkits for Ruby, and I always return to Tk. Well worth the large
    install.
