Thank you Gordon for sharing.

Basically I have a similar setup, that you can see here:


Hopefully the devkit gem will get released next week, which lead me to think:

Where the devkit gem should put the batch files? side-by-side with
ruby\bin or where the gem got installed?

Also, since the gem will be shared across version of Ruby (thanks to
Pik and GEM_HOME), what about "devkit check" command to ensure all the
batch files are in place?

Just checking, more to come on that subject ;-)
