Doesnt work


#1

Hello i just started learing ruby tonight but the first little code
example from the book doesnt work. It creates a ruby file and when i
click on the ruby file a cmd window opens up and shows me the first line
"Say something, please: " so i write something there and press return
and then the cmd window just shuts every time.

print "Say something, please: "
user_input = gets.chomp
print “You said #{user_input} .\n”
print “Backwards, it reads #{user_input.reverse} .\n”
print “The message is #{user_input.length} characters long.\n”

nah it works fine. Add another input statement in there to see.
What’s happening is the output gets displayed, and the window closes
as soon as the process ends. It’s just too fast for you to see.

Start->run “cmd”, and then run your ruby script from in there.

Not any more - or at least not at the moment. The gateway was
switched off AFAIK.
