What do you expect ? Is it supposed to give you some text on its stdout ? 
Does it work in the case where your programme is instead writing to a 
file ? Can it be a matter of finding the programme ? What if you specify 
the complete name of ruby, such as /usr/bin/ruby ? Is the programme's 
arguments sensitive to the default directory (relative filenames) in a way 
that can make it fail ? etc...
