Def is not recognized as an internal or external command

Hi,
yesterday I installed ruby and I have tested a simple function using
"def" keyword and it worked. Today I tried to associate .rb files to
ruby with these commands:
$ assoc .rb=RubyScript
.rb=RubyScript

$ ftype RubyScript="c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe" "%1" %*
RubyScript="c:\ruby\bin\ruby.exe" "%1" %*

and I guess I messed up something cause now it throws me this error "def
is not recognized as an internal or external command.".
how can I solve this?

p.s. ruby -v gives me the ruby version so the ruby is installed.

Thank you!!!

It sounds like you're typing Ruby commands (e.g. def) at the Windows
command line. You need to either put the commands in a .rb file and run
that, or type irb and type the commands there. IRB is Interactive Ruby, a
REPL.
