it really works...

I got ruby compiled and running

Adam.B: Thanks for the vmware image + info
dwz!: Thanks for trying to run ruby on the iliad!

I did some tests to check memory usage:
- a small ruby process uses about 4 MB (VmSize)
- while the script is running /proc/meminfo shows 14 MB free (thats with dropbear and my shell running)

Great to have ruby on the Iliad: it is a *great* language: clean and simple syntax, powerful OO structure, lots of libraries (xml, network, text processing...). A lot nicer than perl...

Hans.
