Question about "No such file to load -- rexml/encodings/ISO-

Hi all,

I am new to Ruby, so forgave me if this question has been asked before.
I am running a software on Windows XP which is written in Ruby . The
script has been converted to exe. I kept getting the following error
message when I run it.

No such file to load – rexml/encodinigs/ISO-8859-1.rb
C:\DOCUME~1/username/LOCALS~1/Temp/eee..2/lib/rexml/encoding.rb:33:in encodinig=’: No decoder found for
encoding ISO-8859-1. Please install iconv.

I know that ISO-8859-1 is the encoder for Latin characters. I checked
the path shown in the error message and there is nothing Ruby there. I
installed Ruby in my computer after that and I do have the file
ISO-8859-1.rb under Ruby directory now. But I am still getting the same
message. So I am not sure if this problem comes up because I am using
Windows. Can I specify the library for the executable to link some how?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

your script has been converted to exe with rubyscript2exe
(http://www.erikveen.dds.nl/rubyscript2exe/index.html) so maybe there
you can find some advice.

First, try adding path to the ISO…rb to %RUBYOPTS%:

set RUBYOPTS=%RUBYOPTS% -Ipath/to/iso88591.rb

and hope that the packed script will pick it up :wink:

If not, I would recommend extracting the archive (your.exe
–eee-justextract) and checking if the file is there. If not, you can
try to provide one (e.g. from your regular ruby installation, and make
sure that is as much similar version as possible) and repack.

I don’t remember the exact process of repacking, I was something like

  1. edit .eee file found in the unpacked dir (add reference to iso8859
    file),
  2. call eee.exe <the .eee file> <destination.exe>

Or, you can try running the script with your ‘regular’ ruby
installation.

Good luck!

Hi Jano,

I have tried unpack the exe file, then add the reference of ICONV.rb and
ISO-8859-1.rb to the app.eee file. Then I repack the file and run it. I
still have the same error as before. I attached the following code that
generates this exception. Any hints?

begin
load ‘rexml/encodings/ICONV.rb’
instance_eval @@__REXML_encoding_methods
Iconv::iconv( UTF_8, @encoding, “” )
rescue LoadError, Exception => err
raise “Bad encoding name #@encoding” unless @encoding =~
/^[\w-]+$/
@encoding.untaint
enc_file = File.join( “rexml”, “encodings”, “#@encoding.rb” )
begin
load enc_file
instance_eval @@__REXML_encoding_methods
rescue LoadError
puts $!.message
raise Exception.new( “No decoder found for encoding #@encoding.
Please install iconv.” )
end
end

No such file to load – rexml/encodinigs/ISO-8859-1.rb
C:\DOCUME~1/username/LOCALS~1/Temp/eee. .2/lib/rexml/encoding.rb:33:in encodinig=’:
No decoder found for encoding ISO-8859-1.
Please install iconv.
You might want to try to load the correct encoding explicitly:

require “rubyscript2exe.rb”
load “rexml/encodings/ISO-8895-1.rb” if RUBYSCRIPT2EXE.is_compiling?

Can you post the smallest test script in which the problem
still occurs?

gegroet,

Thanks for the quick reply! Well, this didn’t solve my problem. I guess
I need to run the project from source. I will try that!
