Installing

Hello!I have just started programming in Ruby as part of my University
course.Now I am having trouble with installing ruby and freeride. I
downloaded Ruby1.8.5 One click installer from www.ruby-lang.org but when
I try to open FreeRide that was included in the package all I get is a
console window withloads and loads of text. Most of the text says
Failing to load: etc.Any help would be greatly appreciated.dipen

That scrolling text you see is warnings being displayed. If you are
patient enough, FreeRIDE should start. However, if you’ve installed
1.8.5 why not use SciTE (it’s installed as well in your ruby directory)?
It is, in my opinion, a nice, lightweight editor with ruby syntax
highlighting.

Thank you Drew. I seem to like SciTe as well. I think I will use that
from
now on.
