Converting IFMapper into Win32 executables

Hi -

Anyone familiar with IFMapper, Ruby and/or its components? I’ve been
trying to “compile” the IFMapper program into an executable file that
can run under Windows without having to install the whole Ruby package
but I can’t make it run.

I’ve been using the Rubyscript2EXE software for this, and it does
“compile”. When I try to run the compiled .EXE file, nothing happens.
I’m not very familiar with Ruby, so I thought I’d ask here (I was
referred here from rec.arts.int-fiction).

All comments are welcome - even those that suggest another mapping tool
instead :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance.

I wrote it, so yes :slight_smile:

You are probably better asking the author of rubyscript2exe.
Rubyscript2exe does seem to have some bugs here and there.
One thing of note is that rubyscript2exe requires you to open and
execute each file requester and menu option on ifmapper (pretty
tedious), so that rubyscript2exe becomes aware of some files that are
loaded on demand only.

Anyway, since you are the second person that asked for it, I created
two .exe files for windows of ifmapper and uploaded them onto the
rubyforge website. They seem to work okay for me, but let me know if
they don’t work for you.
I won’t guarantee I’ll keep updating them if I do some new release of
ifmapper, but at least it will be something…
