Hi,

I am a complete novice to ruby, so please feel free to ask for more
information so this post makes more sense.

I am trying to create an exe from the ruby script, and it all seems to
go well but the resulting exe doesn't do what it's supposed to.  Well it
doesn't do anything at all in fact!

I am creating the exe from the ruby script at:

    http://po-ru.com/files/iplayer-dl-latest.tar.gz

I've created 2 folders:

1. C:\Test:\rubyscript2exe
2. C:\Test\iplayer-dl-0.1.15

1. Contains all the rubyscript2exe files and the ev directory.
2. Contains the files and folders from the above link.

I then run the following line in my command prompt (Win XP)

ruby "C:\Test\rubyscript2exe\rubyscript2exe.rb"
"C:\Test\iplayer-dl-0.1.15\lib\iplayer.rb"

It starts to looks good with the following output:
Tracing iplayer ...
Gathering files ...
Copying files ...
Creating iplayer.exe

However if I try to execute iplayer.exe nothing happens in the console.
I just get the console prompt after a short pause.
I am expecting to receive a whole load of relevant help information
about iplayer.exe

I've managed to get this to work before but for some reason I can't get
the exe working anymore.  Is there something dumb that I'm doing?

Charlie
