ClearOS‎ > ‎


I'm an old-hat to perl.  I like the language.  But I've hated how it sucks at OOP for quite a while now.

As I looked at a couple projects the other day, I started wishing I could OOP-ify them, and then dreaded the thought of writing a perl package.  I've written two before, and didn't enjoy the experience.

So I started looking for a better language, much as it pained me.  I found Ruby.  I'm not talking rails, I'm talking Ruby.
ruby on ClearOS:
#yum install ruby-rdoc
then pull down: wget
tar -zxvf rubygems-1.3.5.tgz
cd rubygems-1.3.5
ruby setup.rb

#yum install mysql-devel
# gem install mysql --version '2.7' -- --with-mysql-config=/usr/lib/mysql/mysql_config
