  • Does Ruby have a free, installed manual yet? It has ri, and passable docs for its core libraries, but what about its syntax? I can't find a damned thing on Ruby syntax, so I wonder whether you are wrong.

    • Programming Ruby 1e [rubycentral.com] is available online for free, and it's recent up to Ruby 1.6. Why would you want an installed version? You're not on an airplane! You're not on a bus! C'mon, old timer. Get on the trolley.

      • Yeah, and using an educational text instead of a manual is great, because it means you get to enjoy the pedagogy every time you just need to check what a colon does. Thanks!

        Whatever, I don't ever program in Ruby, just Ruby-powered DSLs.

        But, if you _happen_ to be constantly on train/airplanes/busses, apt-get install rubybook will do the trick... for some of us ;-)
