Sorry, when I said "gems location," I meant the gems directory embedded
in the Ruby installation directory.
My gem repository is in C:\ruby\lib\ruby\gems which is under my
I plan to install Ruby to a new directory. When I do that, obviously I
won't have access to my existing gems.
Should I use GEM_HOME to move my gems to a "Ruby installation
independent" location and then I should be able to see them from my new
install, or do I need to copy my gems into my new Ruby installation?
