Topic: Using Gems
Hi, sorry if this is a silly question but i'm a little confused as to the use of gems. Are they just another form of a tarball? Or can you literally download modules as gems and you dont have to extract them or anything you can just do something like
and it'll just use that module? Thats the impression i'm getting from reading around but i cant get it to work for the life of me :-/
Ultimately, i'm trying use the id3lib ruby module through my home directory because i'm using it on a server where i dont have permission to install it into the native directory of ruby. If theres some other way to do it, can someone please give me a quick tutorial? I've been working on it for a few hours and kind of lost :-/.
