Well, I have heard a few things about it. Here is a ref I digged up:
  • Slide Presentation Summary Wow! check out how to open a file and grep for something in Ruby:'file.txt').grep /^jubjub-bird$/
  • Brave GNU World's Article on Ruby. Summary has multi-threading independent of OS. Has mod_ruby for Apache. Plans for Ruby to be a successor and replacement for Perl.
  • 37 reasons I love Ruby Summary: I really dont see much in these reasons. Good luck Ruby.
  • The FAQ at Ruby Central Summary Now this is nice. You can serialize and restore objects. Some parts of perl are not truly serializable (sub refs and code refs).
  • Sunworld's "New Choices for Scripting" Summary: Lots of cool languages here
    1. FICL --- has java interface (FIJI) that allows one to script Java programs
    2. Ruby -- hmmm not too much interesting here.
  • Ruby on the Web Summary Lots more links.
