User Guide #02 - Ruby - Getting Started

Ruby, ruby lesson, ruby уроки, user guide, руководство пользователя

First, you'll want to check whether ruby is installed. From the shell prompt (denoted here by " % ", so don't type the % ), type

% ruby -v

( -v tells the interpreter to print the version of ruby), then press the Enter key. If ruby is installed, you will see a message something like the following:

% ruby -v
ruby 1.6.6 (2001-12-26) [i586-linux]

If ruby is not installed, you need to install it, since ruby is free software with no restrictions on its installation or use.

Now, let's play with ruby. You can place a ruby program directly on the command line using the -e option:

% ruby -e 'print "hello world\n"'
hello world

More conventionally, a ruby program can be stored in a file.

% cat > test.rb
print "hello world\n"
% cat test.rb
print "hello world\n"
% ruby test.rb
hello world

^D is control-D . The above is just for UNIX. If you're using DOS, try this:

C:\ruby> copy con: test.rb
print "hello world\n"
C:\ruby> type test.rb
print "hello world\n"
C:\ruby> ruby test.rb
hello world

When writing more substantial code than this, you will want to use a real text editor!

Some surprisingly complex and useful things can be done with miniature programs that fit in a command line. For example, this one replaces foo with bar in all C source and header files in the current working directory, backing up the original files with ".bak" appended:

% ruby -i.bak -pe 'sub "foo", "bar"' *.[ch]

This program works like the UNIX cat command (but works slower than cat ):

% ruby -pe 0 file

Я надеюсь вы уже разобрались в чем дело, но если вдруг нет, то проблема состоит в том, что вы пытаетесь запустить программу из интерпретатора питона. Файл это уже готова…
