Created by Yukihiro Matsumoto, the Ruby programming language blends his favorite languages (Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ada, and Lisp) to form a new language that balances functional programming with imperative programming. The project Web site quotes him as saying he is “trying to make Ruby natural, not simple, in a way that mirrors life". In Ruby, everything is an object. Every bit of information and code can be given properties and actions. Object-oriented programming calls properties by the name instance variables and actions are known as methods. License: Ruby is disjunctively licensed under a choice of either the Ruby license or BSD-2-Clause. For versions prior to 1.9.3, the disjunctive license choice was between the Ruby License or GPL-v2 or later.

Usage Notes:

Use Ruby to simplify the development of Web applications and streamline writing shell scripts. Prototyping and the production of real industrial strength applications can be accomplished with relative ease.
