Hi,

Where is an up to date documentation of Ruby regexps?

“Ruby in a nutshell” page 14.

Sorry for being too lazy. We should have prepare up-to-date, on-line,
free version of the English reference manual. Only if you can read
Japanese, the Japanese version at http://www.ruby-lang.org/ja/man-1.6/
is pretty up-to-date, even covers the latest changes in 1.7 (it’s Wiki
based). Probably I have to setup Wiki for the English version too.

Ugh, it’s only on the paper :frowning:

YES! :slight_smile:

Sorry, I can’t.

Seems that I must read Ruby source.

Still, this page

http://www.ruby-lang.org/ja/man-1.6/?cmd=view;name=����BNF�ˤ
%E8%A4%EBRuby%A4%CE%CA%B8%CB%A1

presents Ruby in a Nutshell in a Nutshell, and you don’t need to know
Japanese.

But if you really do need a translation, go to

Select “Japanese to English” from the drop-down, and paste in a URL.
Presto: awkward but readable English.

Seems that I must read Ruby source.

It’s well worth doing. It’s quite nicely laid out, and it’s easy to see
what classes have what methods, how they work, and so on. It helps if you
know C, but even if you don’t you can still find the names of classes,
modules, constants, methods, etc, and see how they relate.

Ummm… I’ve seen web resources that will take a brief phrase in English
and translate it into other languages (e.g., Japanese). Does anyone know
of any web services that will translate from Japanese into English?

Babel Fish:

Will translate entire pages.
