I went to the Start Menu. I clicked on Run. A dialog box came up with
the word OPEN:
I entered hello.rb and the ruby program ran as before.
However. I still have the same problems:
The screen disappears quickly.
The letters are white on a black background.
I tried this method. I clicked on the My Computer Icon.
Next I clicked on the Control Panel Icon. Next I clicked on the
Display Icon. A dialog box with several options came up:
Background, Screensaver, Appearance, etc.
I clicked on Appearance. Many options came up. I changed the Active
Window option to get a black letter on a white background. However,
when I ran the ruby program, the results were the same as before.
Any other ideas?
