General tip: Watch out for alternate EOL characters.

Mostly an issue when the shebang line has a trailing ^M

The tip-off is usually a "bad interpreter" error message or something
along those lines.

More specific to your case: Try running with tracing:

% ruby -rtracer code.rb

Also verify file and directory permissions, though these things should
raise errors.

And turn on warnings.
