this is the first time I’ve posted to this group. And I am a ruby and
programming newbie. (To give you an idea of my skills I am reading
Chris P.'s book right now, I’ll move to the PickAxe later).
I have installed ruby and rails following Hivelogic’s guide at
seem to have a working ruby / rails install. I have tried Apple’s
tutorial’s at http://developer.apple.com/tools/rubyonrails.html and
some basic ruby programs.
When I type: require ‘readline’ irb gives a false response. When I do
the same with ‘mysql’ it tells me the file doesn’t exist.
Building readline seemed to have gone right. Could someone explain to
me what irb’s answers mean?
