After downloading and installing ruby and gems as suggested on the
download page http://www.rubyonrails.org/down, I decided to go for
instant rails. The reasons being:
- when I ran gem install rails --include-dependencies I got a strange
error message and there wasn’t anyplace to go for quick answers.
2 the instructions under “make your applicaiton” were confusing.
Is “path/to/your/new/application” a particular path in ruby or just
any one you choose? Does the last line represent the entire literal
command or is there something called a script/server that I am
supposed to enter?
I have a masters’ in Computer Science and lots of experience with
various languages. If I’m finding this page confusing, chances are
others will as well.
