Confusion on versions

just downloaded latest 1.6.0 . it reports 1.8.7 - though 1.9.2 were
supported. is there an env var/ other switch required to have jruby
operate
in “1.9.2 mode”?

C:\java\jruby\bin>jruby -v
jruby 1.6.0 (ruby 1.8.7 patchlevel 330) (2011-03-15 f3b6154) (Java
HotSpot™ Client VM 1.6.0_21) [Windows XP-x86-java]

Try (the pretty standard flag) jruby -h for more options…

The --1.9 command line option is not a desirable one given that is the
version I want to use *every *time. Is there not a way to change the
default
from 1.8 to 1.9?

Change jruby.bat (and gem.bat, &c.):

@“jruby.exe --1.9” %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

On 'nix, set an alias.

Though the folk I have met,
(Ah, how soon!) they forget
When I’ve moved on to some other place,
There may be one or two,
When I’ve played and passed through,
Who’ll remember my song or my face.

problem is that when typing “jruby” it finds the jruby.exe *first *not
jruby.bat

You can also pick the compatibility version using the system property
jruby.compat.version. See jruby --properties for details.

Either way, you can specify options for JRuby to always use by defining
the env var JRUBY_OPTS.
