My First Ruby GUI application, using Shoes

Here is my first Ruby GUI app, using Shoes.

# hello.rb
#
Shoes.app do
  para 'Hello World'
end

Execute it (from shell).
$ shoes hello.rb

This opens a window, displaying the text.


Another way to run it is to drag and drop the ruby file over an icon (link) of Shoes on the Ubuntu desktop.
