Ultimately I'd like to get a Shoes GUI to include mechanize, but Shoes
can't  do the necessary require, because it can't find it. I'm wondering
if this is why.

Either way, I'd really like to know why mechanize is not in the gem
directory.

First time posting here. Any help is appreciated. And I'll clarify any
questions. Thanks!

I think i found the answer to this part of my question in another
thread:

Shoes.setup do
  gem 'mechanize'
end

Since Shoes comes with its own Ruby distribution, it installs gems in
a specific location (~/ .shoes/+gem/). See also:
