Sleepy, frustrated and defeated by Ruby

I say defeated by Ruby, that’s not quite correct. I’m yet to reach a stage where I could be defeated by Ruby as I have struck a wall installing it on my computer. I was following this Codemy video to a t, but it all went wrong when I saw three numbers; 2.0.0. Specifically:

ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299) [universal.x86_64-darwin15]

But, I didn’t install 2.0.0. I installed 2.3.0, I can clearly see the line:

‘Installed ruby-2.3.0 to /usr/local/var/rbenv/versions/2.3.0′.

But. Why?

It’s 1:30am and certainly not the best time to worrying about this. I’ll try again in the morning.



The install simply didn’t work, hence the version being stated as the version that was already on the computer, ruby 2.0.0. After a re-install, all was well.
