in reply to Ruby Before Perl? Nah.

Ruby does take some getting used to. "Rails" is pretty slick, though the differences between v1.x and v2.x are enough to drive you mad. The "objectiness" of the language has a certain charm. A different feel to the language, if that makes any sense.

The lack of sigils and line terminators does bug me, though I can get into the groove after a while.

I'm just glad they Mats didn't follow Guido with the whitespace...

When all is said and done, Ruby does not have a Perl Monks. Until there is an established, non-fanboy "Ruby Monks", it will be a lot easier to get things done with Perl.
