- How do you invoke a .rb file from the irb shell?
You don’t (I think). You run “ruby file.rb” from the command line.
- Is there a Ruby IDE?
There are lots! A few good ones are Mondrian, Komodo (not free but very
cheap) and Eclipse with the ruby plugin. You should also find Scrite
(right click and edit a ruby file in win explorer). I’m sure there will
be lots of other recommendations from the mailing list. ( :
Hope I’m right and have given you some help! I’m new to ruby as well
(about a week!). ( :
