Where is the interpreter (in Instant Rails)?

Hello,

I just installed Instant Rails on my Windows XP box. I would like to
test out the Ruby interpreter on the command line. However, when I run
C:\InstantRails\ruby\bin\ruby.exe from the Windows command prompt, it
hangs. Any ideas on how I can get a Ruby command line?

Thanks,

Rex

It’s not hanging, it’s waiting for ruby source code.

You want irb. Look for irb.bat in that same folder.
