    Nice! You gave me the idea to make a more user friendly Ruby version, where it auto compiles the folder if possible, but just reads a pre-made .7z file otherwise. It also can read files from anywhere on your computer, not just inside the folder that the program is in. I will post the code if anybody wants to see it. I might make a batch version as well, because you need Ruby to run Ruby code, but you need Windows to run batch.

    Oh and I believe you can go out of the folder if you change just typing the name to typing the directory from C:/Untill/Filename lol So that could be an easy way to get anywhere!
