Hi i'm new to ruby on rails and the ruby language. I've been following a book i have called beginning ruby and i'm at a point where i'm about to create my first app.. however.. i can't get my .rb file to run using the Scite text editor. When i press F5 all i get is: >ruby analyzer.rb >The system cannot find the file specified. I'm new.. so don't hate me! I just don't know what to do at this point.. as it says nothing in the book and nothing when i search in google for a solution. thanks.

Just in case anyone else gets this problem here is the solution i found whilst on a IRC ruby language channel: This is under a windows platform btw: In windows go to start -> control panel -> system -> advanced tab -> environment variables In here you add the file path of where you ruby.exe file is(the default should be C:\ruby\bin) to the variable called "Path" in the "system variables" section... so edit the "Path" variable and stick ";C:\Ruby\bin" on the end.. and it should work after a scite restart.. **note that the ";" at the beginning of the directory path is to end the last variable entry and may not be needed if there already is one.** thanks
