Created by Yukihiro Matsumoto, Ruby is a dynamic open-source programming language that's centered on productivity and simplicity. Its syntax is easy to write and natural to read. Ruby is a blend of Smalltalk, Perl, Eiffel, Lisp and Ada languages. Its object-oriented approach allows for information and code to be given their own actions (methods) and properties (instance variables). Ruby is flexible and permits its users to freely redefine or remove its essential parts. It has a ton of features for writing C extensions, including a SWIG interface. Ruby has OS independent threading and a mark-and-sweep garbage collector. Although it's developed mostly on GNU/Linux, it works on DOS, UNIX, Windows, Mac OS X, OS/2, BeOS and more. Ruby can even dynamically load extension libraries if an OS allows for it. Another attribute of this programming language is that it's free to use, modify, distribute and copy.
