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.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
