Does ruby have source filters?

I come from a perl background , and in perl there was a module called
Filter::Simple , which made possible writing code in latin ( by
transforming the code you wrote before it reached the interpreter ) , or
whatever strange preferences users might had .
Is there anything similar in ruby ?

Not builtin.

There are some hacks around, google for “ruby source filter”.

You have to actually call it by its foreign name. Like
Ilterfay::Implesay.

What is Ilterfay::Implesay? Neither google , nor rubyforge returns any
results.
