Tar2RubyScript

Description

Tar2RubyScript transforms a directory tree, containing your application, into one single Ruby script, along with some code to handle this archive. Tar2RubyScript can be distributed to our friends. When theyve installed Ruby, they just have to double click on it and your application is up and running! So, its a way of executing your application, not of installing it. You might think of it as the Ruby version of Javas JAR... Lets call it an RBA (Ruby Archive). "Its Rubys JAR..." Like packing related application files into one RBA application, you could as well pack related library files into one RBA library. Now you dont need to install the compound library in the traditional way before using it. Just require the RBA. Because the RBA is pure Ruby and no other programs or libraries are needed, its easy to distribute it to friends. They dont have to install anything but Ruby itself. Unlike the JAR-people, we dont need a new extension for RBAs. A JAR isnt a Java Class, it contains a Java class; an RBA both is and contains a Ruby script. Its also easier to change the format of an RBA in the future, because the algorithm to handle the RBA comes with it at a cost in bytes of less then 10K. Another difference between the two is the entry point: JAR does something with a manifest; RBA just loads init.rb . And, well, they compress, we dont. If you like Tar2RubyScript, you might want to read Distributing Ruby Applications. Its about how I build, pack and distribute my Ruby applications. Theory and practice. Whats New in This Release: · This release fixes a bug concerning looping symlinks and a bug concerning too many open files. · It adds support for hard links and symbolic links (not on Windows)..
