Ruby on the Command Line

A session at eurucamp 2012

Saturday 18th August, 2012

11:15am to 11:30am (CET)

Ruby, thanks to its various frameworks, is known to be *the* language
for web applications – and recent developments in graphic libraries
make it a worthy contestant in the world of GUI-driven desktop
programs. But Ruby is also great for writing command-line applications;
the ability to mix no-boilerplate top-level functions with full-fledged
OOP means its usage can vary from one-off trivial scripts to
complicated, option-heavy command-line powerhouses.

This talk presents the nuts and bolts of writing a command-line
application with Ruby – from option parsing and accessing standard
input/output to playing nicely with POSIX standards like exit codes and
signal/interrupt handling.
