Adam's ruby page

ruby is currently my favourite language, for numerous reasons, not the most insignificant being that it is lots of fun to write in. More specifically, its "everything is an object" design keeps everything extremely clean and elegant, and it inherits all the nicest bits of Perl/Python but none of the nastiness. Some fantastic new ideas have been added too.

Currently I've only written a few things of much interest. First and foremost, I co-wrote rubyphoto with Mark Hulme-Jones, which has resulted in my photo albums looking pretty tasty.

Secondly, I wrote findbin.rb, which precisely emulates the function of Perl's FindBin module (rubyphoto uses this), and abspath.rb, which findbin.rb uses. I announced these on comp.lang.ruby, but had a grand total of 0 replies.
