To Ruby Or Not To Ruby

| July 27th, 2006

Ever since I got acquainted with Ruby I find myself using it more often nowdays. For all those even having a faint acquaintance with Ruby will agree wtih the fact that it is truly a wonderful language, in the sense that programmers enjoy coding in it.

But often I’ve had heated inconclusive debates with fellow programmers about how cool Ruby is. There is this great thread going on at the ruby-talk mailing list which discusses comparison of Ruby and other languages like C,Java etc along with insight on the perofrmance factor aming all these langauges.

I have compiled the entire thread here.
