hi sergio,

for windows user i'm producing a simple exe file using rubyscript2exe.
This exe file contains all dependencies, interpreter, wx stuff etc.


I can remember, that i modified the script due to a bug i forgot, but i
attached the file that i'm using.

for linux in conjunction with the package managers it is (to my mind)
not too intelligent to produce an exe file, because such an exe file
needs to be extracted and that takes some (unnecessary) seconds.

a bit more userfriendly in my opinion is the installation of
ruby-gnome2, not on linux, but on windows. refer to:


kind regards,
der max
