I downloaded Ruby, gem, and mysql and followed your tutorial. I also
checked other postings on routing error andf followed 'Leon A'
sugggestion to a similar problem.

I successfully install ruby and gem according to your instruction in
"Rolling w/ Ruby on Rails book in,

i create:
ruby script\generate controller Mytest

which opens SciTE editor and i type:

class MytestController < ApplicationController
  def index
    render_text => "Hello World"

i run my firefox browser on and i get:

Routing Error

Recognition failed for "/My_Test/"

Please help

my environment is
win XP sp2
firefox 1.5

Don't put caps in the middle of a word unless you want Rails to put an
_Underscore between the words. try mytest

the corrected script below called 'mytest_controlled.rb' myworked ;

class MyTestController < ApplicationController
  def index
    render_text "hello World!"
