Congrats to Matz...working 11 years on Ruby and counting!


(Rich Kilmer) #1

For 11 years of composing Ruby -

Matz started Ruby on 24 February 93
His vision for a language where objects were free
For those that embrace Ruby, yielding laughter and joy
For those trapped in other languages, to confuse and annoy

A dash of regexp with blocks to delight
Its all in the recipe that makes Ruby just right
One day we will watch as Rite and Ruby two-dot-o
Change again the landscape of this world that we know

But to the community that embraces change as the norm
Let us continue to build up this tempest to a storm
And further the vision that Matz has begun
Showing the world that programming in Ruby is fun!

Congratulations :wink:

Mentioning regexp…
I have just played around with my own ruby2html thing…
the output is here… check it out.

Now it converts from Ruby into xhtml 1.0 strict.

Any thoughts about its output?
