Need a ruby book


(Fowler, Chad (GEA, BLR, L088862)) #1

#Well, I really need a ruby book; something to grab hold of and occasionly
#through against a wall. Looking over the mailing list archives, there
#seems to be a lot of comments about ruby books. I have both Programming
#Perl and the Perl Cookbook; I think something on the lines of Programming
#Perl for ruby is what I want. Think I’ll have to try and a find bookstore
#that actually has the books and then look at them…

If you need something like “Programming Perl”, try “Programming Ruby”
(Addison Wesley). I think it will meet your criteria in terms of both title
and content. :slight_smile:

If you want something like “Perl Cookbook”, try “The Ruby Way” (Sam’s
Publishing).
