Ruby start up on Windows slow!

I have looked back through the archives, but can’t find any solutions
the slow start-up of ruby on windows. I know Ron had some slowness
a while ago, but it appears this is different. Basically, when ruby
up, there is a pause of about 1-2 seconds.

I made a screencast of a couple commands. It isn’t deadly, or anything,
it sure it annoying to have to wait. Autotest is nice, but it still
takes a
second or two before the specs run.

Here’s the screencast:


ruby runs real slow on windows across the board.

cleanup your rubygems (gem cleanup)

and try to minimize the number of gems you have installed, or manually
require rubygems only when you need it.

thanks! I’ll try cleaning up.
