Henon,

My thanks to you. I have another success to report. "ruby -rubygems
foxguib.rb" was successful, and now I have the most interesting program
interface staring me in the face. This looks wonderful.

Tomorrow I'll get to start using it. Very impressive. I'm very grateful
to have this tool. I've done a lot of MS Access programming, and I'm
wanting to migrate some of my most vital dbs to ruby/sqlite3 with
fxruby. I'm hoping your GUI builder will make it possible for me. I
expect it will.

Again, my thanks!

Tom
