Patience please: this is a
for dummies question. I've never used a console before and I started to learn Ruby. I use cmd.exe in Windows, but it's bland and has no colour coding, which hurts my eyes.
I did some research and came across this thread: https://superuser.com/questions/87441/alternative-windows-command-shell-and-console
Console 2 is a nice alternative, apparently. I downloaded it, but I doesn't seem to do what I want it to do, and I don't know where to put it. It has no installer. For example, if I type
ruby --version it tells me
ruby is not a recognized command. I understand I might have to configure something, but I can't find any relevant documentation, and I don't know where to put the program, or if that matters.
How do I get it to work as a replacement for cmd.exe, or at least recognize my commands like
git version and
ruby version etc... ? A "not so technical" explanation would be really helpful.
