what’s the problem? Do you make your script directory to an executable
with rubyscripttoexe? If that’s true also the picture in that directory
is now inside the binary. To use it in you script use the
rubyscripttoexe variables.

require ‘rubyscripttoexe’
(…)
RUBYSCRIPT2EXE.appdir + ‘/youpic.jpg’

I can’t do it, I use

require ‘rubyscript2exe’
$pic = RUBYSCRIPT2EXE.appdir + ‘/t.jpg’
picturebox2_img = Image.new($pic)

where t.jpg is in the same directory with .rb file and when I run with
ruby It works but when I convert to exe, and move to different directory
it doesn’t work :’(


#5

I still struggle with it :’(
here’s my code

require ‘wx’
require ‘rubyscript2exe’

include Wx
include RUBYSCRIPT2EXE

RUBYSCRIPT2EXE.lib = [“t.jpg”]

picturebox2_img = Image.new(‘t.jpg’)

I think when I convert to exe and delete file ‘t.jpg’ application won’t
work because picturebox2_img is make from directory and when I restore
‘t.jpg’ from recycle bin it’s work

how can I add jpg to lib?? I do something wrong

Why do you use $ in front of a local variable? AFAIK, that’s reserved
for system use.

where t.jpg is in the same directory with .rb file and when I run with

Try to include the jpg file by setting RUBYSCRIPT2EXE.lib, as explained
by the docs.

I install rubyscript2exe.gem
and use

rubyscript2exe calculator.rb

in cmd and it create calculator.exe in the same directory
what’s wrong :frowning:

Try to use “rubyscript2exe directorywithcalculator.rb/” instead.
But mention that you main script need the name “init.rb”.

Which command do you use to “compile” the application?

#10

finally I can make .exe with picture!
thank you very much :))

I install rubyscript2exe.gem and use

rubyscript2exe calculator.rb

what’s wrong :frowning:

Compiling a script, just, uh, compiles your script. It doesn’t
include the other application files.

However, compiling a directory does include other files.

Create the directory calculator, move calculator.rb to
calculator/init.rb, move t.jpg to calculator/t.jpg and run the
following command:

rubyscript2exe calculator/

Variable names that begin with ($) aren’t reserved for system use,
they’re global variables.
