Upgrading ruby version - is there a command line/gems upgrad

*Hi,

Re upgrading to the latest version of Ruby is there a command line /
gems
type upgrade approach, or do I need to download the “*Ruby 1.8.5
One-Click
Installer
http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/12751/ruby185-21.exeStable
version (
recommended)” and use this to update my windows install?

Thanks

ok - so just run the install executable over my existing installation
then I
guess?

I don’t think anything like that exists. There was a thread sometimes
ago about preserving installed gems across installation (I don’t
remember what they did come to).

Just be aware that it will probably wipe out anything in your ruby
directory, including gems and anything else, last I heard.
