FXRuby is not part of the standard Ruby library, but I’m not sure if
that’s the question that you’re asking.
FXRuby is included with the Ruby O.-Click installer for Windows,
which includes not only the standard Ruby distribution but also a
number of third-party libraries (such as FXRuby).
FXRuby runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, so yes, your friend would
be able to run programs that you’ve written – as long as he installs
FXRuby first. As far as I know, there’s no package like the one-click
installer for Mac OS X.
Hope this helps,
