Moving a ruby environment

I have been using Ruby for a project since 2 months. Now I have to move
to a different system, and installing the various gems on this new
system seems very cumbersome to me. So I was hopping if after installing
RUBY on by new system and them coping the older Ruby folder to the Ruby
folder of my new system in C: drive will make it possible to create the
same environment; without the need to install all the gems I have been
using.

Please give your suggestion if this will work out for me or not. The
path for ruby directory are same on both the systems

It will not take more time to install Ruby in new system it would be
better. and more make doc for which version of gems, etc are in current
system so it would be useful when you install into new system.

Thanks Bhavesh for your suggestions.
Actually there are some 5-6 people who have started to work on the same
project just yesterday. Each of them have Ruby installed. But what I was
thinking if moving of the existing Ruby folder on my system with all the
gems installed to there system works. It will be a-lot more easier for
me to create the same environment on the system.

Please revert.

It would be easiest and most reliable to just use Bundler (
http://gembundler.com/) to manage your gems.

and if you're on a *nix system, rvm (https://rvm.beginrescueend.com/) to
manage your rubies.
