I want to build a program where I will need to play sound from a wav
file using ruby. Is this platform dependent? I will need this for
windows.

I tried the following:

ruby-sound.rb

require 'win32/sound'
include Win32
Sound.play('chimes.wav')
Sound.play('c:\sounds\hal9000.wav')

http://rubyonwindows.blogspot.com/2007/05/adding-sound-to-your-ruby-apps.html

but I get the following errors:

ruby ruby-sound.rb
