I have Ruby compiling fine using Borlands (free) C compiler for Windows.
The only problem is I can’t set where ruby is compiled to, it just
installs it to the current directory (c:\ruby\src\ruby-1.8.4\bcc32).
Normally you can add --prefix=c:\ruby\bin to the configure command and
that sets the directory.
I don’t use C much so it maybe something basic…
Many thanks, K.
