Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This guide for developers describes how to create applications using the Ruby object-oriented programming language. This is not an introductory text, and it is expected that the reader has at least a basic understanding of Ruby. A sampling of topics includes using GUI toolkits; programming with Ruby's database-independent- interface; and connecting two or more applications across a network using Distributed Ruby (Drb).
