The instructions for installation state, "In RWiki package for your 
help, druby, ERb and MutexM have been installed on the `lib' directory." 
This was not true in my experience. Therefore, I attempted to install 
all DEPENDENCIES, i.e.,"I did the best that I could.". Afterward...

$ ruby -dv rwiki.rb

Resulted in the following error messages:

ruby 1.6.8 (2002-12-24) [i686-linux] Exception `NameError' at 
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.6/racc/parser.rb:24 - uninitialized

So, I re-installed strscan and also followed the optparse installation 
instructions instead of what is stated in the instructions. Then...

$ ruby -dv rwiki.rb

Resulted in the following error messages:

I assume I need to install ERb properly. The instructions fail to help. 
I obtained the most current version and installed it. Now...

$ ruby -dv rwiki.rb

Results in the following error message:

times)


Am I making any progress? <f>
