Ruby 1.8.6 - serialport.so (i386-mswin32)

Hello All,
Am very new with ruby and use ruby 1.8.6 (i386-mswin32), for my first
try is running as bellow.

C:\ruby>ruby miniterm.rb COM3 9600 8 1
(eval):1: (eval):1:in private_class_method': undefined methodcreate’
for clas
s Class' (NameError) from (eval):1 from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:inre
quire’
from miniterm.rb:1

I have copy the serialport.so file into

While I’m not familiar with the mechanics of RubyGems, it appears that
on at least several platforms its require() modifications are not
compatible with this library [1]. The recommended fix is to load the
library with the original require() method.

Kernel::require “serialport.so”

Since the library has not been updated since 2004, it is likely to
become even less compatible with Ruby environments as they evolve. If
anyone knows of any active alternate projects, I’d be very interested
to hear about them. Good luck with your project!
