JRuby's Ruby interpreter only

Hi,
I am interested in JRuby's Ruby interpreter only, without all the Java
binding support.
Is it possible to download it (sources or binary) from somewhere?
Is there a way to do it quickly on my own?

Thanks!

There's not really any way to use JRuby without Java support, because
JRuby itself is written in Java. There are also a few core libraries
implemented using Java support. A JRuby without Java binding support
would be a bit like C Ruby without extension or Kernel#syscall support.

You could, however, take a JRuby distribution and trim out everything
you don't need. There's probably a lot you could remove and still have a
functioning interpreter. I'm not sure at what point you'd break
something you need, however.

Hi Charles,
Trimming out things looked like a long process so in that case, I wanted
to manually build the C interpreter on my own but could not succeed in
that.
(I tried with MSVC but quite naively, to be honest)
I probably should start from building the whole thing and that is ok as
I need to start with something.

In
http://www.ruby-doc.org/docs/ruby-doc-bundle/ProgrammingRuby/index.html
I found a few sentences that didnt mean anything to me.

Any idea, instructions, link etc would be very much appreciated.

Try downloading source of the one-click installer [1], follow the docs.

Hi Jan,
I already installed Ruby on my PC and happily played with it.
However, I would like to build the interpreter myself and that is what I
could find how to do.
Any ideas?

If you want to build it yourself, just make sure you are using MSVC
6.0, SP5 and follow the readme instructions in the "win32"
subdirectory of the ruby source distribution, and it should go pretty
smoothly.

For which most people would recommend against at this point because of
the unstable and incompatible nature of various compilers around the
'net.
