Ruby-lang.org suggestion

Hi.

In the download section of ruby-lang.org, there’s a how-to about
installation of Ruby.
The document says:

However, afaik, the recommendation way of installing ruby is using
virtual package
named ‘ruby’ especially in Ubuntu. Thus, I believe that the above code
snippet should
be corrected like:

% apt-get install ruby irb rdoc

What do you guys think about this?

Sincerely,
Minkoo S.

I’m happy to make this change if it is needed, but I know nothing
about this. Can someone please confirm this approach?

I can confirm on Ubuntu.

The command should probably read:
$ sudo apt-get install ruby irb rdoc

For irb and rdoc you will need to enable the universe repository.

Good enough for me, I made the change.

Thank you both.
