I'm just getting started with Rails and I have a problem getting a simple "hello world" app working. I have Ruby 1.8.2 installed. I then installed RubyGems and from there Rails. Everything good, so far. I created an application and the basic main page works just fine. Following the chapter 4 of the Dave Thomas book, I create a "say" controller and add a "hello" method to it. When I then try to access this new method via my browers the WeBrick server spits out a long stream of error messages. For brevity's sake, I'm including only the first few because I feel sure that this is probably a common newbie oversight of some sort.

After some digging, I found my own problem. It turned out that I did not have IRB installed.
