Licences for ruby code

Hi at all,

I started to develop in Ruby last week, after my little example of class,
module, Proc, lambda, functional programming, etc. Now I start to develop
code that I would publish on github.

My simple question is: what license I can use ?

I saw that Ruby has this license
https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/about/license.txt

I saw on github several and not all project that are released under MIT,
GPLv3 and Apache License.

My context is company-free, otherwise I choose directly Apache or other
similar.

Thanks

​Wonderful. Welcome!​

​If you're copying code from Ruby itself, then you're subject to that
code's licenses. However any code you write *yourself*, from scratch,
without any other provenance, you are free to license however you see fit.

For example, if I create a gem that is a copy-and-paste of ​part of Ruby's
"math.c" or "lib/pp.rb" with my own customisations applied, I'm bound by
the Ruby license. However most of my gems aren't that, so I release them
under whatever license I choose (often ISC.)

Cheers
