I believe in Ruby
For the contest and all you Bull Durham fans…
Well, I believe in blocks, iterators, closures, that everything should be an object, the power of reflection, garbage collection, exception handling, that multiple inheritance causes more problems than it solves. I believe interpreters should be totally free. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing pointers and verbose syntax. I believe in a strong standard library, green threads, that a language should trust the programmer rather than restrict his efforts and I believe in sheer fun of coding that truly is possible to achieve.
