Getting Ruby:

On Windows, navigate to

In most Linux distributions, Ruby is installed by default. To

verify, run the command "which ruby". If you see a path like

usr/bin/ruby, it is installed. If not, navigate to the page above.

On MAC OS-X, ruby is installed by default.


Any text editor will work for Ruby coding. Several free

editors with Ruby syntax highlighting are available online.

In this course, I'll be using Aptana Studio, available at for

Windows and Mac. On Linux, EMACS or Vi/Vim is the editor of

choice, but a web search for Linux Ruby Editor will reveal

more possibilities.
