Creating an exe on Mac OS X

I’ve created a Ruby P. with Textmate, but now I need to create it
as an exe for Windows computers. I know there is a way to create exe
files on Windows, but I do not have the resources installed on a windows
computer…

Any links or advice would be greatly appreciated!

I am confused by a few points.

Are you trying to create an exe file on Mac OSX or are you trying to
create
a .app file in Mac OSX?

If it is the latter, checkout Titanium Desktop. I am sure there are
other
ways, but Titanium Desktop is Open and very straight forward.

I need to create an exe, but I have been looking for a while for an
app maker, so I’ll check this out.

To answer your question more directly I need to create an exe file for
windows… The people using the application are running windows, and I
have had a lot of trouble installing the resources on a windows computer
to even compile it at home (with something like RubyScript2Exe). I know
it’s a bit odd because unless you have an intel mac running windows, you
can’t even run the application after compiling it, but that is what I
need.

Ocra is a gem that can make Windows .EXEs; unlike RubyScript2Exe, it’s
still maintained and works on Ruby 1.9. I think it only runs on
Windows. It does automatically include needed gems, but I had trouble
including other files my program needed (although you’re supposed to
be able to do so).

I don’t know if your program will run on Jruby, but if so, you can use
a tool like Rawr to bundle it into your choice of .app, .jar, or .exe.
Again, I had trouble with it, but I’m not very experienced with Jruby
as a whole. YMMV.

Oh, I forgot to mention this blog post which tells how to bundle an
app manually with Jruby:

if you just want to create a exe use iexpress a software inbuilt in
windows

If anybody knows of a tutorial for Rawr that would be greatly
appreciated. I have been searching around and have found a lot about
Cardinal and Parrot VM and compiler… Again I’m very new at this stuff,
and have never bundled or compiled a program before, so if anyone had a
tutorial on this or another program that would be immensely appreciated
as well!
