3. A fully object oriented interpreted scripting language by Yukihiro Matsumoto <[email protected]>.

Similar in scope to Perl and Python, Ruby has high-level data types, automatic memory management, dynamic typing, a module system, exceptions, and a rich standard library. Other features are CLU-style iterators for loop abstraction, singleton classes/methods and lexical closures.

In Ruby, everything is an object, including the basic data types. For example, the number 1 is an instance of class Fixnum.

Current version (stable): 1.6.7, as of 2002-03-01.
