I am learning ruby and shoes and started to building a simple
GUI application. I am wondering how I can kind of "compile/package" my
simple application for distribution. I'm currently using LINUX:

1 - I would like to be able to distribute the application, if possible,
to
other platforms that do not have ruby install. Can this be done?

2 - Can I install the application on a Windows platform?

Thank you

Hi Ruby Student,

Green Shoes is just a gem written by pure ruby.
So, your application will be able to run on Windows, too.
But, ruby install is necessary.

I don't know whether green shoes works with the OCRA gem, but it might
be worth a look.

Team,

I got it that *green shoes* is a Ruby gem and you need Ruby to use it.
That
said, however, I was wondering.......

Since *jruby* can be *packaged* using the* *"magic" of Java, and since
*green
shoes* is a Ruby gem, can I use the *jruby/green_shoes* combination to
create and package my application? If I am not mistaken, there is a way
to
build a jruby package (jar?) or something to that effect. Any comments?

Thank you
