Could you, please, provide a http location?

It’s the 21st century, IP address shortage, NAT, …

Thanks

Any reason why this is throttled to 2K/sec ? At this rate the next
version will be out before my download completes.

Mirrors?

I got that beat. I am right now compiling it thru Windows Vista onto a 1
Gig
Flash drive, for the hell of it. I expect the next version to be out
before my
tar xfj completes! (-:

(BTW I’m also actually using it, remotely on a Linux server, and it
works fine
so far…)

Just wondering if there are Windows binaries yet. Is this compiled on
Windows using MinGW or VC++ 6?

I checked the FTP directories on ruby-lang:
ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mswin32/unstable/
ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mingw/1.9/
ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/djgpp/1.9/
…and all don’t have it yet.

Cheers,
Mohit.

Tried, works.

However, having that in the message to start with would be somewhat
more helpful.

Thanks

Unlike binary newsgroups bittorrent is quite well designed bandwidth
multiplier :wink:

#13

I’m trying to make one of my libraries run on this rc, and ran into this
difference from 1.8:

% touch afile
% irb

open(‘asdf’, ‘rb’) { |f| f.flush }
IOError: not opened for writing

% irb1.9
open(‘asdf’, ‘rb’) { |f| f.flush }
=> #<File:asdf (closed)>
%

Is this intentional? I was previously abusing this as a way to find out
if an arbitrary io object was writeable. Perhaps theres a better way in
1.9?

Also if there’s somewhere else one should turn to for 1.8 -> 1.9
questions please let me know…

Thanks,

Charles

Ruby 1.9 currently does not support djgpp. We need help for threading
support on djgpp.

Binaries built with VC6 usually can be found here:

http://www.garbagecollect.jp/ruby/mswin32/en/

No news yet.

Builds with MinGW are coming, still several things to iron on the
build process for both 1.8.6 and 1.9.1, will do a proper announcement
when crack that down.

May want to ask that on ruby-core

Do you have more details about that package? build scripts used?

Even I trust Ruby, I cannot trust too much in packages all written in
japanesse and flashes command prompt windows while installing.

http://arton.no-ip.info/data/asr/Ruby-1.9.1.msi

just installed this one and the irb does not echo the keystrokes nor
does it shows the prompt.
