Some Python programs have a couple lines of code like this:

if __main__ "__main__"
    main()

I think it's supposed to call the main function if the script is executed
directly. Is there an equivalent in Ruby? Or is it even necessary in Ruby?

(I'm new to Ruby, so excuse me if this is a stupid question.)
