First of all, I’d like to point out that while the “What does this Ruby
code do?” CAPTCHA when signing up at ruby-forum.com is admittedly a very
clever idea, it’s a bit of a pain for Ruby novices like me. You have to
know Ruby in order to get help on Ruby? Anyway, I don’t mean to say that
just to complain, I just felt it worth pointing out.
My main question is actually pretty simple: Does anyone know if there is
a Ruby-based tool/library that’s comparable to SCons?
(For those who don’t know, SCons is a Python library (plus a helper
tool) that serves as a much cleaner/saner (at least IMO) alternative to
makefiles. But, although I’ve never actually written any Ruby code
before (yet), I’ve looked into the syntax and from what I’ve seen I like
it much better than Python.)
