Sample text

Introduction I wanted to minimize my frustration during programming, so I want to minimize my effort in programming. That was my primary goal in designing Ruby. I want to have fun in programming myself. —Yukihiro Matsumoto (Matz), creator of Ruby Ruby is a “best of breed” language that has been assembled from the best and most powerful programming features found in its predecessors. —Jim White Ruby makes me smile. com) Ruby is a fun toy. It’s also a serious programming language. Ruby is the jolly uncle who puts in solid 12-hour days at the construction site during the week but keeps the kids entertained come rain or shine.

However, if you’re using Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X, almost everything will work as described in this book without changes. Before you can start playing with Ruby, you need to get your computer to understand the Ruby language by installing an implementation of Ruby on your system, which I’ll cover first. In some cases, Ruby may already be present on your computer, and we will cover these situations also. 3 4 Ch apt er 1 ■ L E T’ S G E T IT S TA R TE D: INS TA LLI N G R U B Y Installing Ruby Typically, when you install Ruby onto your computer, you’ll get the Ruby interpreter, the program that understands other programs written in the Ruby language, along with a collection of extensions and libraries to make your Ruby more fully featured.

Otherwise, try to see what version of Ruby is now installed with ruby –v. If the expected version of Ruby appears at this point, you’re ready to move to Chapter 2 and begin programming. If you get an error complaining that Ruby can’t be found, or the wrong version of Ruby is installed, the place where Ruby was installed to might not be in your path (the place your operating system looks for files to run). To fix this, scroll up and find out exactly where Ruby was installed (usually /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin) and add the relevant directory to your path.
