Your question got me to check my Ruby_1.8.2-15 installation on my
K:\>gem -v => 0.9.0
which AFIK has been working well.
K:\>echo %rubyopt% => rubygems rubygems
Looks suspicious; should I cut it down to just rubygems?
and what does it do, anyway?
K:\_Utilities\Ruby_1.8.2-15\ruby\bin>dir u* => update_rubygems.cmd
(also plain update_rubygems)
Should I run this before I run gem to download something?
Or does "gem update" run "update_rubygems.cmd"?
TIA for any insights you may offer.
