REQUIREMENTS:

Windows, more than one version of Ruby (otherwise, what's the point?) and Rubygems

INSTALL:

  • Install pik to a location that's in your path, but someplace other than your rubybin dir If you're upgrading from a more recent version, pik_install will overwrite the older files as needed.

    >path
      PATH=C:\tools\;C:\ruby\186-p368-mingw32\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS
    
    >pik_install C:\tools
  • If this is a first-time install, look at pik add, and pik install to set up your environment.

    >pik add C:\ruby\IronRuby-091\bin
    Adding:  091: IronRuby 0.9.1.0 on .NET 2.0.0.0
     Located at:  C:/ruby/IronRuby-091/bin
    
    >pik install ruby
    ** Downloading:  http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/66874/ruby-1.9.1-p243-i386-mingw32-rc1.7z
       to:  c:\installs\ruby-1.9.1-p243-i386-mingw32-rc1.7z
    
    ...
  • If you're upgrading from version 0.2.6, you should be able to upgrade with 'pik update'

  • If you're upgrading from a version <= 0.1.1, you'll want to delete the pik.bat file from all of your ruby versions. Gem uninstall should do the trick.

Note:

When using IronRuby, I have found that is necesary to configure the GEM_HOME env. variable to a directory
inside of the IronRuby lib:

  pik config gem_home=C:\ruby\ironruby-091\lib\ironruby\gems\1.8

Also, if you're using a version of JRuby older than 1.4.0RC2, you'll probably need to set the JAVA_HOME env
variable.

 set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jre6
