You may want to email Matz directly to request that information. I
suspect it exists, but that much of the earlier stuff is in Japanese
only.

Also, there is no Ruby ‘compiler’. There’s also no ‘runtime
environment’, though if you mean a virtual machine, one is coming for
Ruby 2.0 (YARV).

I thought there was a way to compile Ruby into an executable (similar,
but
better than, Perl’s perlcc), or did I misread an email thread that went
by a
while back?

I believe you’re thinking of either exerb or rubyscriptexe, which only
work for
Windows (or Linux). They aren’t ‘compilers’ per se.

I remember finding a way to package a Ruby program in an executable,
but it wasn’t a compiler, it just packed the Ruby interpreter along
with the Ruby source into the .exe.

Thank you very much for your help…do you know how to contact Matz
directly? Do you know his e-mail or any other way of contacting him?

Thanks again,
Craig

Well, he reads this list, so there’s a fair chance he’ll see this
post. If you don’t want to wait, give him a shot here:

And while you’re waiting to hear from Matz, check this out, if you
haven’t already:

Thank you all very much. I might ask a question about how to write an
certain example program in a little while. Is that okay on this forum,
or is there a better place for me to ask for help?
