We don't have to use a scripting language, but if you're a Ruby beginner, it sounds like you might have chosen to anyway! What do you really want to know? By the "exact need of Ruby", do you mean what Ruby itself needs to be usable on your computer? Or what one oneself might need that could bring them *to* Ruby?

For the people who contribute to this list, Ruby is a bit better suited to solving problems (those problems that can be solved with the help of a computer) while allowing programmers to keep their marbles. > and Why we have to > use a scripting language? To define Ruby a scripting language is decidedly reductive. Ruby is an interpreted language that adapts to simple scripts as well as to large projects. Is the question: why do we use an interpreted language instead of a compiled language? Well, with modern hardware, common tasks will not be notably slower when using a good interpreted language. And Ruby is neater to program and to debug. Carlo

Why do you "need" to know that? Frankly, this sounds suspiciously like a homework assignment. If that is the case I suggest you do some own research first. Kind regards robert
