Hi all –
I’ve created a site called ruby-versions.net, on which I’m giving out
shell accounts. The site gives you command-line access to Ruby
versions dating back to 1.0, and several modern Ruby interpreters
inclusing JRuby, Rubinius, and Ruby Enterprise Edition (as well as MRI
1.8.6, 1.8.7, 1.9.1, and development snapshots).
To get a shell account, please start by reading
http://ruby-versions.net, and use the link there to email me. That
will help me semi-automate the process.
ruby-versions.net is an EC2 instance, which means it’s potentially a
bit volatile… I haven’t decided how aggressively to back stuff up.
Please treat it as a place to try things out, learn about Ruby
history, compare versions and implementations – but not as a
development platform or a place from which to operate Internet
