Hi, im new to all this.
I have a laptop running Windows and i was wondering if someone could
just
write a brief set of instructions on everything i need to install/set up
in
order to get Ruby running.
By the way, could someone explain to me exactly what Ruby is for and
what
you can make with it?
Kinda a lot to ask but thanks!
Ed

Hello, Eddie.

Check this out:

http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/20/rails.html

It gives a pretty good overview of what Ruby is, and how to install it
on a Windows box.

Ruby is a scripting language. Ruby on Rails is a web development
framework written in and using Ruby.

Why don't you start here: http://www.rubyonrails.org/

When you're ready to install look for the download called "Instant
Rails".
