By the way, based on the instructions contained in http://www.rubyrep.org/installation.html, I simply extracted the files and folders from the zip file, yet I cannot run the "rubyrep" executable file.

Hope someone can help.

Many thanks and cheers!

Hi willowdan
Unless you supply some information, such as what command you gave and what error messages you received, our
guess is as good as yours.

Hi Rich & Tinypoodle,

By simply isueing the "rubyrep" executable file in the commandline, seemingly the sh command is rather being called.

Cheers!

Any vague description could not equal pasting of output ad verbatim.

Hi Tinypoodle,

I mean if I issue "rubyrep generate myrubyrep.conf", the sh is called instead of "rubyrep" executing ...

Cheers!

That is providing one more unclear description instead of providing facts...

If any executable is not in your $PATH, you have to call it either with absolute or relative (./command) path, also you have to make it executable in case it is not (chmod +x).

Hi Tinypoodle,

Sorry forgot to mention, I first went into the exact folder where rubyrep is, from there I executed the said command, but the sh was being called instead.

Cheers!

"All diagnosticians are from Missouri."

That US state's official motto is "Show me" (earned in 1899, when Congressman Willard D. Vandiver said "I come from a country that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I'm from Missouri. You've got to show me.")

In diagnosticians' case, it's not a matter of skepticism, but rather a literal, functional need to see whatever is as close as possible to the same raw evidence that you see, rather than your surmises and summaries. Show us.

Hi Rich,

Yes, the rubyrep file is executable already, sti the same experience. What else should I be missing?

Cheers!

What you are missing is showing exactly what you typed, and exactly what you get back.
