Ruby: another scripting language

Well, since i already do PHP fairly well, and i do perl with occasional competence, and i've mangled some python in my time, i decided that I should start learning Ruby too. Ruby is installed on OS X right from the start…. why? well here's to finding out… yesterday i nabbed some other people's projects and some libraries(did not install mod_ruby) though… i also have a tendency for eclectic tools and things, so ruby seems perfect

i wonder though whether it will be as nifty/simple as REBOL, which if it was just free, would be one of my favorite languages.
