computer programing in Off Topic Posted November 18, 2009 Hi Darth, I am new to this forum and now a days I am learning Ruby. I want to share something about Ruby. Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. It is based on Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ada, and Lisp. Ruby supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional, object oriented, imperative and reflective. It also has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management; it is therefore similar in varying respects to Python, Perl, Lisp, Dylan, and CLU.
