I have been using tar2rubyscript and rubyscript2exe with FXRuby and it
works like a charm. But now first time I am trying to generate a file
from ruby. It works fine with the interpreter, but apparently not with
the generated exe.

Here the three lines of code (in a file named init.rb)

file = File.open(“test.txt”, “w”)
file << “Hello world from the file”

And what I do:

ruby tar2rubyscript-0.4.7.rb eclipse/test/
ruby rubyscript2exe.rb eclipse/test.rb

What I am missing here? I don’t know what happens. No error, no message
and no output file. Do I need extra configuration? I am using Windows XP
(in the office) and XP 64-bit (at home). Same results. Ruby 182-15 and
last versions of both tools.

Thanks for your help.


file = File.open(“test.txt”, “w”)

Should be:

file = File.open(oldlocation(“test.txt”), “w”)

It’s described on the site [1].
