svg% ruby -ve 'p $LOAD_PATH'
ruby 1.8.1 (2004-04-24) [i686-linux]
["/home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8", "/home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i686-linux", "/home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/site_ruby", "/home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/1.8", "/home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/1.8/i686-linux", "."]

svg% ruby install.rb
./formatter.rb -> /home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/site_ruby/formatter.rb
./html-parser.rb -> /home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/site_ruby/html-parser.rb
./sgml-parser.rb -> /home/ts/local/r181/lib/ruby/site_ruby/sgml-parser.rb
svg% 

svg% ruby -rhtml-parser -e 'class MyHTMLParser < HTMLParser; end; p MyHTMLParser'
