Well, first of all, Ruby is a "very" high level programming language. It originated in Japan! The language is interpretated, not compiled!

It's an object oriented programming language, and it's scope is dynamic!

If you know spanish, then here is a brief description you should check ---> http://www.ruby-lang.org/es/

Now, here is a users manual! I hope it is of any use, seems helpful ---> http://www.ruby-lang.org/es/

The exclamations are of surprise and interest, just incase, hehe.

Well, hope it helps! Oh my ... I am very late, well, hope this is of aditional se then!
