I really like Ruby. Who here has looked at it? What do you think of it?

Ruby looks a lot like Python. The Python syntax, at least to me, looks cleaner. I do like the help file that comes with Ruby.

I found a book on Ruby in my book store. Wonder what Ruby is named for?

To answer Bumsfeld, a lot of the Ruby language is based upon Perl.

Yes, I love Ruby, because it's very easy to understand. The day I started learning it I felt that I could easily be programming fluently in it very soon, and I think that this is very rare in a language.
