Hi, i'm under Windows XP SP2 and i installed OneClick Installer. So, i began to read some documentations and i learnt to use the gets's method. So nothing hard in that, i wrote my program in SciTE: puts "Hi what's your name?" nom = gets puts "OK Hi " + nom But it don't work. A windows with "c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe" in the titlebar appear but i can't write anything in it. Nothing. So i close the windows and in SciTE i have it: Exit code: -1073741510 Can you help me please? And please, don't tell me i have to work under Linux ;o) Thanks Alex

Well don't worry you don't have to switch to Linux. When running programs which use "gets", you have to use your command line. 2006/4/2, Alex <email@example.com>:

Use your favorite text editor (even Notepad). Save the program as "name.rb" and run it from the DOS prompt with ruby name.rb (To open a DOS prompt, click on Start / Programs / Accessories / Command prompt.)

Or you can still use SciTE to get the syntax coloring, but follow William's advice by only running your scripts in DOS.

Hi, thanks for your answer, actually, i found it after my message. But on Windows, in command prompt, you have to be in the directory which contain the program. I havec to type: cd \ cd mysampledir\ex1 ruby name.rb And it works! Thanks

I have found just the same thing myself.. You can use SciTE to write the ruby program, and do make sure you give it a .rb extenstion, and do make sure that you save it before running it. But when is comes to running it you should run it from inside the command prompt, not from inside sciTE. If the program has no lines in it using gets then it will probably run in SciTE, but if you are using gets then run it in the cmd prompt. The other interesting things are : 1 what if you want to put the ruby program in to a part of rails, and where and how to do this.. You can put ruby code into parts of rails but you should surround the ruby code with <%= and %> I think, and of course you must have a ruby server running on the machine that you have the file on, otherwise no ruby code will be interprested at all!
