So I’ve just installed DevKit successfully and have passed the
installation test (5. TEST INSTALLATION) as recommended by this web
Now I’m following a book that suggests I “install the redcloth gem, a
library that can convert specially formatted text into HTML, ready to be
used on a Web page.”
Please note that there are already RedCloth files in my Ruby
installation directory because when I first went into this gem
installation tutorial, I didn’t know I had to install DevKit first. So
I installed RedCloth before the Devkit.
I had problems with the RedCloth installation of course, but now that I
already have the right version of Devkit installed, I figured I’d
install RedCloth again, assuming that all those RedCloth files will be
overwritten and everything will be fine.
This is what I got:
C:\Users\Kaye>gem install RedCloth

Why ‘no such file to load’?
I made the testgem.rb to test if RedCloth was installed properly.
