Rdiscount on windows


#1

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help. Im trying to get an application running on
windows which requires the rdiscount gem. I found the following link
below which looks like its a no go on windows(sorry link is so long, the
page was cached),

http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache:uH2rJxIMclQJ:tomayko.com/writings/ruby-markdown-libraries-real-cheap-for-you-two-for-price-of-one+error+installing+rdiscount+on+windows&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=uk

Has anyone managed to get this successfully installed on windows?

If windows is a no go then what are my options, can i take rdiscount out
and replace with something else?

Any advice appreciated, apart from ditch windows as its not possible
YET!

RDiscount works fantastically on Mac and GNU/Linux systems, you can find
alternatives here:
