Rexml / OpenSSL on Windows


(Stephan J. Schmidt) #1

Someone I know has a Ruby problem:
“I would like to deploy a Ruby application on Windows and need some
modules: openssl and rexml. Do I have to install cygnus to compile
the modules ? Any hints appreciated”

Thanks,
bye

REXML is Ruby.

REXML is “100% pure Ruby” :wink: so no special requirements there. The OpenSSL
module is a C extension (i.e. you will need to compile it to a DLL) but I
don’t believe it requires Cygwin. I’ve built it in the past for the
mswin32-based Ruby and managed to get it to work :wink:
