[ANN] One-Click Ruby Installer for Windows 1.8.5-21 released

This release upgrades Ruby to the recently
released version 1.8.5. A few Win32-Utils packages
have also been upgraded to newly released
versions, but other than that, everything else is
the same as the 1.8.4 release. You can download it
here:

  http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167

If you use the Breakpointer package with Ruby on
Rails, then you should stay with 1.8.4 because
1.8.5 contains a change that breaks this package.

Curt,

Thanks very much for this release and all your work on
the win32 installer!

By any chance, are the .lib files for the packaged dll's
available anywhere?

For example, when building a ruby extension (eventmachine),
during the extconf, I get:

checking for main() in ssleay32.lib... no

It would be great to have the .lib files corresponding to
the .dll's.

What do you think?

Thanks,

Bill

Speaking of which, I just installed Visual C++ Express on the gizmo that
I get paid to sit in front of. :slight_smile: So now I can experience first had the
thrills, chills and spills of Microsoft Development without parting with
any cash. I think I have MinGW and MSys too; something I installed
required them. And of course I also have CygWin and Plan C, aka VMware
Server. :slight_smile:

So I think I'll download One Click and see if I can build extensions,
etc. Are there some *known* not to work with VC++ Express?

does this include the patch for the recently discovered hash mem leak?

thanks for one-click.

Partly OT, but I'll ask anyway: Does anybody out there have NArray
binaries suitable for running on the One-Click Installer?

Thanks in advance,

Either One-click 1.8.5-21 or the IFMapper 1.0 gem is seriously busted. (IFMapper got upgraded from 0.9.something only recently, so both upgrades hit my system at once.) If I start it directly from IFMapper.rbw, nothing seems to happen. If I type "ruby IFMapper.rbw" I get a gazillion errors.

A lot of the components of the installer are acquired as prebuilt
binaries. In the case of OpenSSL, these binaries do include the lib
files and I should have been including them. You can extract them
yourself from here:

Most would be bad. I'm finally getting to the point where I can write
up an email that is overdue regarding this.

I think what I'm really going to hope for is some way to *wrap* cl.exe
calls to look like gcc compiles. The real trick will be to make it so
that ./configure does something useful in an MSYS environment.

The compiler situation on windows is currently an incompatible mess.
We're persuing possible solutions (Austin Ziegler is spearheading part
of this with Microsoft). But currently the only gauranteed safe way to
compile extensions is to use VC++ 6.

I'm definitely going to use it. I have it saved in a bug report:

  http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=4962&group_id=167&atid=715

This release was just a real quick update (no bug fixes or added features).

Awesome,

checking for main() in ssleay32.lib... yes
checking for main() in libeay32.lib... yes

Thanks!

Hi

I have just discovered ruby and was interested to see what its
mathematical capabilities were, and also being mainly a Windows XP user,
i decided to setup using the one-click installer.

I have placed the narray.so in the C:\ruby\lib\ruby\1.8\i386-mswin32
directory
and have tried running a mandelbrot sample that i found here
http://narray.rubyforge.org/demo/mandel.html.en.

Cut/Copy the example into the RDE i get the follewing error,

c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-mswin32/narray.so: no such file to load --
narray_ext.rb (LoadError)
  from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
`require'
  from C:/Documents and Settings/Boz/Desktop/mand.rb:1
Completed(1)

Is there a path that i have to set somewhere or something else?
also the original example uses a library called nimage to display the
mandelbrot set, this doesnt seem to be available for the one-click
installer from what i can tell. Are there any other ways that i can
display the image using Ruby?

I have a very strong Matlab background and am just curious to see what i
can do with this new thing called Ruby.

Any help is appreciated.

cheers
B

It seems that the narray package also comes with some pure Ruby libs as
well. You'll need to download the tarball and install those.

Thanks Dan!

Indeed there were two lib files with the narray tarball which i copied
into
c:\ruby\lib\ruby\1.8, now running the previous mandelbrot code seems to
work!

Now that i read the previous error message again i see that in hindsight
my eyes read "narray.so: no such file to load --" and stopped there,
thinking thats crazy, of course it read "no such file to load
--narray_ext.rb" , my mistake :slight_smile:

Do you have any idea on how to display this output as an image, and is
there a chance you know how to do FFT's ? I've downloaded
http://www.ir.isas.ac.jp/~masa/ruby/dist/ruby-fftw3-0.1.0.tar.gz , but
i'm lost right about there, i guess i need to download the source from
fftw.org and then do some kind of magic with MSVC++6 where i end up with
fftw.so or somesuch?

I basically just want to do something like, image(abs(fft(data))) , is
this too much to ask at this stage of Ruby windows one-click version?
All this compiling of libs has me stumped a little, and about the only C
i do is when i write MEX files in Matlab.

thanks once again
