Programming Ruby 1.9 (3rd edition)

Ruby is the fastest growing and most exciting dynamic language out there. If you need to get working programs delivered fast, you should add Ruby to your toolbox.

This book is the only complete reference for Ruby 1.9, the very latest version of Ruby. (If you’re still using Ruby 1.8, you’ll want to check out the original PickAxe.)

2010 marks the 10th anniversary since the first edition of the PickAxe. We’ve updated the book for Ruby 1.9.2, and we’re making the ebook available in epub and mobi, as well as PDF. (Kindle owners—there’s a lot of code in this book, and the Kindle and code listings aren’t great friends.)

The Pickaxe contains four major sections:
  • An acclaimed tutorial on using Ruby.
  • The definitive reference to the language.
  • Complete documentation of all built-in classes, modules, and methods.
  • Complete descriptions of all 97 standard libraries.
This is the reference manual for Ruby, including a description of all the standard library modules, a complete reference to all built-in classes and modules (including all the new and changed methods introduced by Ruby 1.9 and 1.9.2). It also includes all the new and changed syntax and semantics introduced since Ruby 1.8. Learn about the new parameter passing rules, local variable scoping in blocks, fibers, and the new block declaration syntax, among other exciting new features.
