Need of ruby and Scripting language

Hi…

I am a ruby beginner.I need to know what is the exact need of ruby,what
is the difference between ruby and other languages and Why we have to
use a scripting language?

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?

Quoting NagaLakshmi _N ([email protected]):

need to know what is the exact need of ruby,

In which sense? If you mean material needs, a PC plus an operating
system (I suggest Linux) is all you need in order to start.

what
is the difference between ruby and other languages

Many books could be filled on this topic. 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.

I need to know what is the use of scripting language and why Ruby is
preferred more?

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
