Hi all

Recently signed up for my first webhosting service. Have got php, perl
& python provided. have been given.
 /cgi-bin
 /htdocs

I would like to try and get ruby going on this site. I have the
binaries from the freebsd /packages/All/ruby-1.8.1_2.tgz. have unzipped
all contents to /cgi-bin/ruby on the server.

I have no telnet available on the server(for me any way) and can only
run shell commands via `command` in a php or perl file.

I am hoping that by setting certain files properties to executable,
setting some environment variables, and somehow advising apache about
what I've done that I would be able to get erb going by using
!/cgi-bin/ruby in my files.

Has anyone tried to do this or has any thoughts on this.

It might not be possible but hey its worh a try.

Thanks Paul, rubynewby & netcadet
