The standard reference for Ruby is the "Pickaxe" book, i.e. Programming 
Ruby, 2nd Ed. 
(http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/ruby/index.html). This book 
has answers to all your questions.

The 1st edition is dated but still quite useful and is available online 
here: http://www.rubycentral.com/book/. This one explains the difference 
between require and include.

You can read about "gems" (RubyGems) here: http://docs.rubygems.org/
