If the debugger is part of Rails now, shouldn’t I expect it to
install? When I run ‘gem install ruby-debug’ it runs the Microsoft
make, ‘nmake’ and it compiles C source that demands version ‘1200’ of
the C compiler, which is old version 6.0, I think. I have a later
version on my machine I could try but I really don’t want to debug the
debugger if I don’t have to. I presume it insists on that specific
version for a reason.
Is there a Windows (32-bit) binary available for ruby-debug ??
And shouldn’t ruby-debug be using a non-antique version of the
compiler? I’ve found the MS site where we can all download a free
command line version of the MS C compiler but it’s a newer version
than the one used by ruby-debug.
I can’t be the only one with this problem. We all debug. And lots of
us use Windows.
Thanks for any help,
