I am confused with installing a gem

Hi
When I tried to install ‘sexp’ gem for first time (with this statement :
‘gem install sexp’ ) ruby gives me an error but when for second time I
tried with the same statement ruby didn’t give me an error . Why ruby
behave such this ?

** I take a picture from steps that I tried to install that gem **

Short version: It installed fine, but one of the dependencies’ for the
sexp gem documentation didn’t compile correctly (the gem will still
work, just not the documentation).

Long version: The error you got has to do with documentation (rdoc)
generation. The sexp gem installed fine, there was just an error in
the documentation generation for rparsec, a dependency for the sexp
gem. The second time you tried to install it, gem didn’t try to
redownload anything because it was already installed, and it didn’t
regenerate the rdoc for anything except what you wanted to install.

I could be wrong, though.

Works fine for me. Please make sure you have an updated version of
rubygems (looks like you have a new enough one given the alternatives
line). Networking, proxy, firewall, etc could also be causing
complications… See “–help” and maybe run with “–debug”.

yes its the latest verison i am pretty sure (also my ruby version is
1.9.2 if that might be the problem)
May i ask in which file did you put your gem

In which file? Gems are files that are unpacked into your gem directory.
I installed into a temporary directory for demonstration purposes only
via the “-i” flag. See ‘gem install -h’.

To find out where gems are installed type gem list -d. This command
displays the complete list of gems or if you just want to find a
specific gem type gem list -d [name of gem]. If you are having an issue
with a gem try uninstalling it with gem uninstall [gem name] and then
install again.

No That is not the problem its command prompt cant find any gems i
downloaded therefore it cant install them
