I've experimented with Ruby, and have found it intriguing too.

The main downside to Ruby is the lack of documentation (at least in English). The only documentation I've been able to find is the online version of Programming Ruby.

I do like the instance variables though (those prefixed with a @ -- it's like %self in Perl OO). Many of the features work better than Perl OO, but that should change with Perl 6. St. Larry has dabbled in Ruby a little and found some features that he's going to incorporate into Perl.

Ruby is definitely worth a look.

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
