Command prompt problem with windows 7

I’m new to this, so forgive me noobishness(is that a word?) and have a
problem with my command prompt in windows 7. when I try to run a ruby
file, I get this msg “ruby: No such file or directory – argv.rb
(LoadError)” (See ATTACHMENT).

I’ve done the “Add C:\ruby\bin”
trick and restarted, but it doesn’t seem to work! ANY IDEAS WOULD BE
GREAT!

Are you really sure that the file `argv.rb’ is in your current
working directory?

Does it show up when you enter `dir’ at the prompt?

I’ve done the “Add C:\ruby\bin”
trick and restarted, but it doesn’t seem to work! ANY IDEAS WOULD BE

It couldn’t make a difference: the error message is issued by ruby,
so apparently there is no problem with locating the ruby interpreter.

Please simply include the command (`ruby argv.rb’) and the
error message in the email itself.

The file argv.rb does not exist in the directory you’re running ruby
from. cd into the directory that argv.rb exists in , execute from there,
all will be well.

tried that. it didn’t work

C:\Users\Al Baker>Documents\Programming\RuBy\ argv.rb
‘Documents\Programming\RuBy’ is not recognized as an internal or
external comma
nd,
operable program or batch file.
ad i tried it without the forward slash as well.

you have to change into the directory with `cd’:

$ cd Documents\Programming\RuBy
$ ruby argv.rb

You might also want to search for some command prompt tutorial.
