Starting to know Ruby
The other good reason I see by learning this new language is that it could be used for the Web and to create desktop applications, I know that there is a lot of controversy about PHP frameworks vs Ruby on Rails but Iím planning on learning more about PHP as well since itís a well known language and it cannot be ignored since its used on most of the CMS.
Sorry for making this too long but I just wanted to share my short experience with Ruby, now I need to ask a question.
Iím currently using the command line to execute the little programs that I have been practicing with and I was wondering what is needed if I would want to run (install) a program made with Ruby on a machine that doesnít have Ruby installed? I know I would need Rails for the web but for desktop applications?
Do I need some sort of compiler?
How can I create buttons, text fields etc. for desktop applications?
Sorry Iím new to this language and to the programming world in general.
Thanks a lotThank you very much!!!
