Extending Ruby: A Fistful of Gems

Abstract

Perl has CPAN (www.cpan.org), JavaScript has JSAN (www.openjsan.org), and Python has a darkened crypt (http://py.vaults.ca). Ruby also has a unified packaging system for supplementing the evailable cloud of libraries on a system: RubyGems. Each individual bundle of functionality under this scheme is called a gem and contains, as you will see, all of the code and metainformation pertinent to given library.
