The Book Of Ruby is a free PDF-format guide to Ruby programming. Written by Huw Collingbourne, Technology Directory at SapphireSteel Software and one of the developers of the Ruby In Steel IDE for Visual Studio, The Book Of Ruby provides a comprehensive tutorial to all major aspects of Ruby programming.

The code from each of the twenty chapters is supplied in the download archive. If you are a Ruby In Steel user, you may load the entire code as a single Visual Studio solution and run the code using the integrated Ruby Console and debugger. There is no dependency on Ruby In Steel, however, and you may load the code into any editor and run the programs from the command prompt.

For the record, here are a few statistics on The Book Of Ruby. It contains:

- 425 pages
- 20 Chapters, plus an introductory section, appendices and an index
- More than 84,000 words
- Over 300 ready-to-run sample programs
- It is 100% FREE!

To get a copy go to the Download page.

    Great book, thanks a lot:)

    There’s a bug in one of your example programs: ch4/sets.rb:

    line 4 reads: require "Set"

    but it should be: require "set"

    the first version won’t run on linux.

      Thanks for the info. As my company develops a Ruby IDE for Windows, we only have Windows machines here for testing and the problem you mention must be due to Linux’s case sensitivity. I’ll make a note of this.

      best wishes

    Huw, You’re a wonderful man and I’ve read about 100 pages into your new book. Beautifully written BUT is there a "Table of Contents" available anywhere? I can’t really read it from cover to cover and I’d like to view certain parts but find the only option to scroll for ???? David

      The Table Of Contents is shown in the Acrobat Bookmarks panel which lets you link straight to each chapter and topic header (View / Navigation Panels / Bookmarks). For a more comprehensive topic list there is also an index starting on page 415.

      best wishes
