* What's mRuby
mRuby is the light-weight implementation of the Ruby language complied to the ISO
standard to execute various environments. It can run in 'interpreter form' or
'compile and execute on vm form' according to its module construction.
This achievement is due to the Regional Innovation Creation R&D Programs of
the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan.
