in thread perl vs ruby

There's also this article recently featured on perl.com.

Update: It seems my cut and paste skills are substandard. The link should now work thanks to stefp

Ruby book

    I was pretty surprised to find the Ruby article article featured at perl.com, but thinking again it isn't such a surprise: O'Reilly has to sell its Ruby in a Nutshell, and outside of Japan Perl programmers are probably the main audience for such a book.

    Unfortunately the O'Reilly article missed one of the most important sources for Ruby beginners:
    There is allready the Programming Ruby book published by Pragmatic Programmers. You can read the whole book in html here.
    So just download Ruby and/or read the free book to get a feeling about Perls little brother.

      Missed?

      You think that O'Reilly omitting the first and only good currently available book in English on Ruby, a book which just happened to be produced by a competitor of theirs, is an accident? Particularly when said book is rather well known, and is one of the main reasons that the language has been getting some press lately?

      I don't...

        Well, in my humble opinion we basically wrote the same. It just happens that both of us have different styles of writing and different ways to communicate/transport meaning ;-)

        Hermeneutically yours,
