Downloading the osx-gcc-installer for Mavericks

It doesn't look like the osx-gcc-installer is available on github for the latest Mavericks OS. Is there an alternative?

you can use RVM (which is what I prefer to use) or use rbenv. (there are probably many other options as well but these are some of the most popular)

you can download and install RVM with rails by running this command

$ \curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --rails

and I believe you can pass in the version number you want like so:

$ \curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --rails=4.0.0

Thank you for your help, Preston. Got it all working now. :)
