I feel like I’m the last person in the world to do this. Up until now I’ve pretty much chosen Python as my “Perlesque” language of choice, and I never had much of a will to dabble in what seemed to be nothing more than a slightly better Python.
But I changed my mind.
After spending some time at this live demo site, I decided I’m going to do my next little coding project in Ruby. I’m going to get the O’Reilly book on the language, actually, and learn it the right way. I might even consider coding my
mst tool in this instead of Python. All depends on how Ruby interracts with OS commands, really.
I’m excited, yet I feel a bit like I’ve cheated on Python. We’ll see how it goes…
