- Provides a pure Ruby implementation of the IPC protocol
- Supports single-pass read/write for all main Q-types (19 atom types, 19 vector types, lists, dicts, flips, exceptions)
- Converts Q types to/from native Ruby types, including Array, Hash, Bignum, Float, Symbol, and TrueClass/FalseClass. Date/Time types are not yet natively supported.
q_connection = QConnection.new 'localhost', 5001 # Note we'll use the sync call (get) q_connection.get("a:`IBM`GOOG`APPL") response = q_connection.get("a") # Get the body of the response puts response.inspect
sudo gem install q-ruby-driver
