I would like to download a gem without installing all the required gems for a given gem.
Specifically for the Rails 3 gem. It has a lot of dependencies, and I need to install it on a closed server which currently has no ruby/rake/rails software.
Any clues would be great as clicking through rubygems.org is tedious.
okay, let me clarify this a bit. What I would like is for this to work:
gem install rails --download-only
which would solve my problems as then I could burn the resulting gem's onto a disc and move them over to my server which doesn't have Internet access.
