5.0 out of 5 stars A definite keeper, September 1, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ruby Cookbook (Cookbooks (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
Some O'Reilly books are horrible, and some are great--this happens to be one of the better ones. It's full of concise examples of how to use Ruby's standard libraries and most popular extensions that more than make up for their frequently terrible and always unnavigable RubyDoc generated documentation. An excellent next step for those who've read through "Programming Ruby" and are wondering how to put the language's better features to good use without becoming completely dependent on any of the currently popular application frameworks I'd guess about 90% of people are learning Ruby for. It even covers RubyCocoa basics.

I have found a couple typos here and there, but mostly just misplaced spaces and omitted words; nothing dangerous so far.
