Ruby’s Building Blocks: Data, Expressions, and Flow Control

  • Peter Cooper
Chapter

Abstract

Computer programs spend nearly all their time manipulating data or waiting for data to arrive from elsewhere. We type in words, phrases, and numbers; listen to music; and watch videos, while the computer performs calculations, makes decisions, and relays information to us. To write computer programs, it’s essential to understand the basics of data and its manipulation.
