To help us alternative Ruby implementers keep our sanity, I’ve had a
wiki up for several weeks to see if it would work for gathering
documentation and information on the Ruby language, libraries, runtime,
and implementations. I hope for it to eventually cover everything from
quirks in the C and Java implementations to specifications for DRb and
marshaling (which is starting to come along, btw).
I know you all would be a huge help in filling it out. It’s starting to
gather steam and gains new contributors every day. I think this is the
best way to build out a community-driven specification of what Ruby
really is…a continuously evolving specification that can be a
day-to-day reference for both new and experienced Ruby programmers.
The wiki is hosted on my site for now:
Won’t you folks (experts and nubys alike) contribute a bit on your
favorite language feature, library, or implementation quirk? You’ll be
my hero if you do!
