ruby-build - utility to compile and install Rubies
ruby-build [OPTIONS...] DEFINITION PREFIX ruby-build --definitions ruby-build --version ruby-build [-h|--help] rbenv install [OPTIONS...] [DEFINITION] rbenv install [-l|--list] rbenv uninstall [-f|--force] DEFINITION
ruby-build provides a simple way to compile and install different versions of Ruby on UNIX-like systems. ruby-build downloads, builds and installs the Ruby version specified in a DEFINITION into a PREFIX directory. Definitions can be chosen from the list of installed definitions or by specifying a file path for a definition. rbenv(1) users can also use the provided rbenv install command, which installs Rubies into the rbenv directory.
--definitions List available definitions. -f, --force When using rbenv-install, force installation of Ruby versions that are already installed. When using rbenv-uninstall, uninstall without prompting for confirmation or displaying an error message for Rubies that are not currently installed. -k, --keep Don’t delete source code after installation. -p, --patch Apply a patch from standard input to the Ruby, JRuby or Rubinius source code before executing the ./configure step. -v, --verbose Display compiler messages on standard output. --version Show ruby-build version and exit. -h, --help Show usage information and exit.

CC Sets the path to the C compiler. CONFIGURE_OPTS Options that are passed to ./configure when building a Ruby. MAKE Sets the command used for make. MAKE_OPTS Options that are passed to make when building a Ruby. MAKEOPTS Used instead of MAKE_OPTS when MAKE_OPTS is not defined. RUBY_BUILD_BUILD_PATH Sets the location in which sources are downloaded and built. RUBY_BUILD_CACHE_PATH Sets the location where downloaded package files are cached. RUBY_BUILD_DEFINITIONS Adds a colon-separated list of directories to the build definition path. RUBY_BUILD_MIRROR_URL Sets the root URL of the mirror from which package files are downloaded. RUBY_BUILD_ROOT If set, overrides the default location from where build definitions in share/ruby-build/ are looked up. RUBY_BUILD_SKIP_MIRROR If set, forces ruby-build to download packages from their original source URLs instead of using a mirror. RUBY_CFLAGS Options that are added to the default CFLAGS when building a Ruby. RUBY_CONFIGURE_OPTS Options that are passed to ./configure when building a Ruby. In contrast to CONFIGURE_OPTS, these are only passed to Ruby and not to any dependent packages (such as libyaml). RUBY_MAKE_OPTS Options that are passed to make when building a Ruby. In contrast to MAKE_OPTS, these are only passed to Ruby and not to any dependent packages (such as libyaml). TMPDIR Sets the location where ruby-build stores temporary files.
