i tried to make a gem and tried to build the spec file and this is what happened: C:\Users\Al Baker\Documents\Programming\RuBy\string_extensions\lib>gem build str ing_extensions.gemspec ERROR: Gemspec file not found: string_extensions.gemspec any clues?

You look like you're in the lib directory, but the gemspec would usually be one directory up. Try "cd .." to go up to C:\Users\Al Baker\Documents\Programming\RuBy\string_extensions and try again?

tried that and got: C:\Users\Al Baker\Documents\Programming\RuBy\string_extensions>gem build string_extensions.gemspec ERROR: Gemspec file not found: string_extensions.gemspec and tried this: C:\Users\Al Baker\Documents\Programming\RuBy\string_extensions>gem build <spec file> The syntax of the command is incorrect. and tried this: C:\Users\Al Baker\Documents\Programming\RuBy>gem build string_extensions.gemspec Invalid gemspec in [string_extensions.gemspec]: uninitialized constant Gem::Spec iification ERROR: Error loading gemspec. Aborting.

Does the file "string_extensions.gemspec" actually exist? You have to have written one of these yourself.

yes i created it and stored in the 'lib' of "string_extensions"

As per earlier comment, I don't think it should be in "lib", but in the directory containing "lib". If it still doesn't work despite that, I'm not sure what's going on.

i fixed it. seems i misspelled something. but i got a weird response: C:\Users\Al Baker\Documents\Programming\RuBy\string_extensions>gem build string_extensions.gemspec WARNING: no description specified WARNING: no homepage specified Successfully built RubyGem Name: string_extensions Version: 0.0.1 File: string_extensions-0.0.1.gem

It looks fine to me. The warnings are just mentioning things not specified in the gemspec.

ok. question? would i add that info in by typing "s.dscription = etc,etc; and s.homepage = blah.com"?
