Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide, Second Edition ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2004/10/11
Ruby is an increasingly popular, fully object-oriented dynamic programming language, hailed by many practitioners as the finest and most useful language available today. When Ruby first burst onto the scene in the Western world, the Pragmatic Programmers were there with the definitive reference manual, Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide.
Now in its second edition, author Dave Thomas has expanded the famous Pickaxe book with over 200 pages of new content, covering all the improved language features of Ruby 1.8 and standard library modules. The Pickaxe contains four major sections:
- An acclaimed tutorial on using Ruby.
- The definitive reference to the language.
- Complete documentation on all built-in classes, modules, and methods
- Complete descriptions of all 98 standard libraries.
If you enjoyed the First Edition, you'll appreciate the expanded content, including enhanced coverage of installation, packaging, documenting Ruby source code, threading and synchronization, and enhancing Ruby's capabilities using C-language extensions. Programming for the World Wide Web is easy in Ruby, with new chapters on XML/RPC, SOAP, distributed Ruby, templating systems, and other web services. There's even a new chapter on unit testing.
This is the definitive reference manual for Ruby, including a description of all the standard library modules, a complete reference to all built-in classes and modules (including more than 250 significant changes since the First Edition). Coverage of other features has grown tremendously, including details on how to harness the sophisticated capabilities of irb, so you can dynamically examine and experiment with your running code. "Ruby is a wonderfully powerful and useful language, and whenever I'm working with it this book is at my side" --Martin Fowler, Chief Scientist, ThoughtWorks

- Written in a good style by the famous pragmatic-programmers team :)
- A good introduction to Ruby "from programmers to programmers" including a nice tutorial and a good language reference.
- Skips the boring details of teaching you what programming is.
- Covers a lot of useful topics from Unit Testing and Duck Typing with Ruby, to Ruby Gems and web development with Ruby.
- Represents a very comprehensive reference for Ruby 1.8. All the built-in classes and modules and almost all the standard library are documented!
- Some examples do not work well (or not at all!) on Windows.
- Some areas could have been more thoroughly investigated (especially web development with Ruby - a very hot topic now).
- The tutorial feels a bit slow.
I started the tutorial on the rails web site and it really did blow me away. I ordered both the Ruby and Rails books from Amazon immediately and have been devouring chapters daily from both.
Ruby is an excellent language. Fully OO, and a lovely syntax. I thought Java was nice (and it is), but Ruby is a real gem ... :-)
This book will enter the halls of great books like "The C Programming Language", "The Java Programming Language" and "The C++ Programming Language".
It is very well thought out, very concise, and avoids the pleonasms and verbiage that afflict some languages. It has some features that I've not found in other languages: the code blocks and 'yield' constructs are really nice. Don't think of it as an OO version of Perl: it is so much more than that.
If you want to learn Ruby - this really is a superb place to start. If Ruby is going to prove to be a challenger to Java in years to come, then this book is a perfect place to start your Ruby journey. It is indeed a mine of information.
For example, I wanted to know what the command was to write some text out to a file. Surely I should be able to find that! But the section of the book entitled "Writing to files" is nothing to do with that, and as far as I can tell there is nowhere in the book that tells you how to do it. I figured it out, of course, and it's vey simple, but as a beginner I needed a book that would tell me things like that.
Similarly, the section on loops is amazingly shallow. I wanted to know how to implement a loop equivalent to a do...while loop in C. The "Loops" section of the book describes the until loop, but does not mention when the condition is evaluated. By trial and error I figured out that it does not do what I needed, and I had to resort to the internet for the solution.
Anyway, enough ranting. It's not a bad book and has a good reference section at the back, but if you're trying to learn Ruby from scratch, you'll need another book as well.
Il libro è un'edizione vecchia ma quella nuova ha un costo molto più alto. Se si è dei principianti in programmazione questo libro è sicuramente sufficiente. Il libro si trova sul sito ufficiale in formato pdf in modo gratuito ma io consiglio il libro per avere sempre tutto sotto mano.
