1) Is it possible to install Ruby (the compiler) onto a flashdrive and run it on another machine without adding the registry edits? Is there like a portable copy of the compiler that I can use? I need Ruby at school, but I can't install anything.
2) I think my Ruby is dead. I try to run a really simple program and Ruby hangs whenever I use gets()... For example:
name = gets("What is your name? ") puts name
Inputted in SciTE makes the command line for Ruby pop up, then it freezes, only to let me exit Ruby and continue working. I can use puts() and other commands fine. What is wrong:?: I NEED RUBY TO WORK!
