ok, not you...

 but at the time the other few dozen that sent me hatemail found ruby
a 'toy language',  'too  perlish', 'too much like smalltalk', etc. and
when i mentioned that ruby might be easier to embed into a C program
than python is, the response was  'BS'. keeping in mind that i've done
both but the python person hadn't.

anyway. i'm not going round and round on this...been there done that,
