Ruby Ports

Windows does not provide a POSIX environment by itself, so some sort of emulation library is required in order to provide the necessary functions. There are several ports of Ruby for Windows: the most commonly used one relies on the GNU Win32 environment, and is called the ``cygwin32'' port. The cygwin32 port works well with extension libraries, and is available on the Web as a precompiled binary. Another port, ``mswin32,'' does not rely on cygwin. It is currently available as source code only. The remainder of this chapter will refer to the cygwin32 port.
