First question in here

Hy all

I’m new in here, so hi all for the first time. I’m a Perl and I’m
trying to learn a second scripting language, and I liked Ruby.

I’m getting crazy with one thing, documentation. Where did you set it?

Do Ruby as support to JASON, I didn’t found it.

Best Regards

If you’re using Gutsy, there’s a libjson-ruby in the repositories if
that’s any help?

cheers,

I would follow my nose in search of headers and examine the makefile.

Despite ruby gems, I find using my operating systems package management
usually
works best. I also prefer pure ruby implementations where possible,
because
it’s
less bugger (for me) to fetch via gem. And if I was worried about
performance
I’d have waited for skipped ‘scripting’ languages…
