Ruby is a reflective, dynamic, object-oriented programming language. It combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like object-oriented features, and also shares some features with Python, Lisp, Dylan and CLU. Ruby is a single-pass interpreted language. Its main implementation is free software.
Ruby Programming Language Features
- Ruby has simple syntax, partially inspired by Eiffel and Ada.
- Ruby has exception handling features, like Java or Python, to make it easy to handle errors.
- Ruby's operators are syntax sugar for the methods. You can redefine them easily.
- Ruby is a complete, full, pure object oriented language: OOL. This means all data in Ruby is an object, in the sense of Smalltalk: no exceptions. Example: In Ruby, the number 1 is an instance of class Fixnum.
Did You Know?
Mac OS X comes with Ruby already installed. Most Linux distributions either come with Ruby pre-installed or allow you to easily install Ruby from the distribution's repository of free software. You can also download and install Ruby on Windows. The more technically adept can download the Ruby source code and compile it for most operating systems, including Unix, DOS, BeOS, OS/2, Windows, and Linux.
