Written for both experienced and new programmers alike, Learning Ruby is a just-get-in-and-drive book a hands-on tutorial that offers lots of Ruby programs and explains how and why they work, just enough to get you rolling down the road. Interest in Ruby stems from the popularity of Rails, the web development framework that's attracting new devotees and refugees from Java and PHP. But there are plenty of other uses for this versatile language. The best way to learn is to just try the code! You'll find examples on nearly every page of this book that you can imitate and hack.

Describes how to use operators, basic math, functions from the Math module, rational numbers and more. Guides you through Ruby arrays and demonstrates hashes in detail. Explains how to process files with Ruby. Discusses Ruby classes and modules (mixins) in detail, including a brief introduction to object-oriented programming (OOP).
