How to tell if you're on windows

Is it possible to tell that you’re on windows from within jruby?
Thanks!

I’ve used this :
require ‘rubygems’
puts RbConfig::CONFIG[‘host_os’]

then to check it:
if RbConfig::CONFIG[‘host_os’] =~ /mswin32/

fyi: you don’t need to use rubgems, RbConfig::CONFIG is part of Ruby
itself.

Just require ‘rbconfig’

puts RbConfig::CONFIG[‘host_os’]

then to check it:
if RbConfig::CONFIG[‘host_os’] =~ /mswin32/

Indeed, and here’s what we do in JRuby tests to detect Windows platform:

require ‘rbconfig’
WINDOWS = Config::CONFIG[‘host_os’] =~ /Windows|mswin/

The ‘Windows’ part of the regexp sees to be a legacy for older JRuby
versions. With newer JRubys (JRubies?) checking for mswin seems to be
enough.

As a note, it appears that many of the regexes in this thread don’t
handle mingw32 (which is what the next release of windows one click
installer will be using).
Cheers!

I normally have this method in Kernel module (so it’ll be globally

def is_windows?
!! if PLATFORM.match /java/
java.lang.System.getProperty(‘os.name’).match(/win/i)

PLATFORM.match(/win/)

I would strongly recommend that the one-click installer not introduce
a new platform name. FileUtils, for example, has special-cased logic
for mswin32. There are other examples as well. Is Luis L. in
charge of one-click these days?

He is.

Unfortunately it’s not really luis’ thing–well…it kind of was to
decide to shift compilers, but that’s another story.
RUBY_PLATFORM is set to mingw whether we want it to be or not :slight_smile:

require ‘rbconfig’
RbConfig::CONFIG[‘host_os’] =~ /mswin|mingw/

viewed as not-good-enough-for-now when trying to determine if you’re
running on Windows from multiple Ruby impl’s?

It appears to work for me on 1.9.1p243 from http://rubyinstaller.org/,
JRuby 1.3.1, and IronRuby 0.9.1.

I think that will work as long as you have Jruby versions new enough
[older versions wouldn’t work–but who uses older versions anyway?]

To make sure I didn’t miss something here, is this

require ‘rbconfig’
RbConfig::CONFIG[‘host_os’] =~ /mswin|mingw/
