I'm sure this has been asked before on this list... I was wondering if there are any Smalltalk-like IDE/Browser environments in the works for Ruby? Certainly there are differences between an image-based environment like Smalltalk, and more of a scripting language like Ruby. But I certainly would love to have the ability to easily browse the source of all the Ruby libraries and other add-ons in an environment like a Smalltalk browser. Thanks, <Mark/>

Actually, I'd love to see something like IRB that would let you play like IRB does ( since you'd have live autocompletion ) .... and let you then save out the living environment ( code and all ) ... so that the env could be re-instated whenever/whereever. that would be a beautiful thing. it would be interesting to store out all of that stuff ... ... that would be a cool project. j.

This isnt going to be practical until we have ruby-in-ruby. Lots of cool ideas are waiting for that to arrive.
