Does anybody here find the prag prog ruby book
("Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide") far too long?
I'm wondering if there's really any point filling up half the book with
API that's already available on-line?
I also find a lot of the text verbose and aimed at beginners.
What I'd really like is something small, concise and definitive like the
K&C book "The C Programming Language". I'm hoping that this might do the
The Ruby Programming Language
by David Flanagan; Yukihiro Matsumoto
Anyone got a copy? What do you think?
