IRB equivalent to windows cmd if any?

I am currently using ruby 1.9.3. But till now i am using windows command
prompt to use “IRB”. So is there any eqivalent “IRB” console like
“windows cmd” for Ruby code run and test.

You can run IRB direct rather than typing irb into the console… What
are you looking for?

you can try pry http://pryrepl.org/

How does so? Every I need to write “IRB” on the console.

irb is ruby’s interactive mode – it’s very much a command line
interpreter (REPL*) that handles ruby code. I guess I don’t quite
understand what the issue is here. What do you mean by “Every I need
to write IRB on the console” ? I’m woefully unfamiliar with the
windows environment, but if there’s an irb.exe, you should just be
able to click on that from Explorer and it will launch in a box, won’t
it? Or maybe from the Start menu, if that still exists?

OTOH, If you are writing your ruby code in an editor and saving it to
a file, you should be able to just call it with ruby from a cmd
window, like:

C:\mycode> ruby.exe myprogram.rb

(*REPL : Read-Evaluate-Print Loop)
