Is there any way to package a Ruby Shoes app into an .exe File?

It’s not really very redistributable if I have to tell people to
install Ruby and Shoes first…

I’ve seen the “.shy” files but couldn’t find any documentation on
those either.

TIA

I do hope you provide it that way, too, though, seeing as Ruby and Shoes
run
on more platforms than just Windows, and both are probably larger than
your
app (thus increasing download size for people stuck on dialup).

I’d look at NSIS:

http://nsis.sourceforge.net/

That’s not Ruby-specific or Shoes-specific, though.

it’s easy!

run:
shoes -p

and you get an interface to create exe for windows, man and linux!
PS: you need the last version
bye
