Here is a little chunk of code that may help you

puts 'I am a fortune-teller.  Tell me your first name:'
fname = gets.chomp
  puts 'What is your last name.'
  lname = gets.chomp
puts 'Hello, '+ fname + ' '+ lname + '. ''Your name is a great one!'

Ok say i was using this code using SciTE

puts 'Hello there, and what\'s your name?'
name = gets
puts 'Your name is ' + name + '?  What a lovely name!'
puts 'Pleased to meet you, ' + name + '.  :)'

After i input my name in the gets, and press enter it just skips the
rest of the program and closes it!

Whats wrong?

Thanks,
