I'm looking for a quick reference guide to Ruby. I have the PickAxe already, which is great for learning Ruby, but now I'm looking for something more reference-like and smaller :-) The O'Reilly "in a nutshell" book is from 2001 and covers only up to 1.6. I imagine they're waiting for 2.0 before the do another book. Is the book still worth getting? Is there a different quick-reference/quick-explanation guide that people recommend? Thanks Jeff

For quick reference check out ri, otherwise use the Pickaxe. Of course if matz gets royalties (I would assume he does, probably enough to buy snacks), then by all means pick up a copy :-)
