Hi,

I'm trying to get my brother to try ruby.  Currently he's using Windows
2000 (he's a Linux user, but he's stuck witnh Windows for now).  After
ruby is installed and you've written a program, how do you run it?

When I was there I tried clicking on the program.  That caused a terminal
to come up and show the output.  But the terminal quit right away.

I tried:

prompt> ruby prog.rb

But Windows didn't recognize ruby as a program.

Also, is there a Windows equivalent of the '#!' line?

Thanks for the help.
