== About

JRuby is the effort to recreate the Ruby ( interpreter
in Java.

The Java version is tightly integrated with Java to allow both to script
any Java class and to embed the interpreter into any Java application. 
See the 'docs' directory for more information.

== Run

    bin/jruby rubyfile.rb

interprets the file 'rubyfile.rb'.

== Compiling from source

You will need:

* JDK 1.5 or greater
* Apache Ant ( 1.7 or greater.

To compile, just type:


This will create a jruby.jar file in the projects 'lib' directory.

== Testing

In order to run the unit tests, copy the build_lib/junit.jar file to either
$ANT_HOME/lib/junit.jar or ~/.ant/lib/junit.jar.

See 'docs/README.test' for more information.
