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. Regards, ashbb

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
