I use UltraEdit (www.ultraedit.com) -- not the best editor, but it handles a
lot and is cheap ($30, I believe).

I execute 

  ruby "%f"

... from within UE to run the code (UE captures the output into its own
window)

and 

  ruby -rdebug "%f"

... to run the debugger. Works pretty well.

I glommed a syntax highlighter from this email list that someone had created
for a different editor and hacked one up for UE (author doesn't have one yet
at his website).
