in reply to Perl Vs Ruby

I like Ruby a lot, IMHO it's syntactically cleaned perl dialect with some python specific features.

And it's really amusing how the ruby hype sucks the snake community ! 8 )

But

  • no CPAN like perl
  • much slower than perl
  • by far not as widespread as perl

maybe in some years Ruby might be mature enough, but hopefully at that time perl 6 is available.

IMHO who masters perl has no problem dealing with ruby, but not vice versa.

so the strategic decision is up to you!

Cheers Rolf

[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
[marto]: Corion nice, what are you plans for Christmas?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Nice, you just won't be around to deal with the mess - enjoy your vacation :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Sure, will do. Thanks!
[Corion]: marto: No great plans - I'll meet with my sister, my brother and my mother, but that's all :)
