+Emscripted-Ruby
+===============
+
+Emscripted Ruby is a build script that uses [Emscripten](https://github.com/kripken/emscripten)
+to compile Ruby MRI 1.8.7 for use in a browser. The main difference is the
+conversion from C to C++ and the switch from setjmp/longjmp (which can't be
+implemented in JavaScript) to C++ exceptions.
+
+The project is in its infancy. Right now it suffers from a crash due to an
+LLVM's miscompilation of the Ruby garbage collector, and have numerous
+deficiencies, especially in handling Bignums.
+
+The build script is licensed under the [MIT license](http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php).
+The modifications follow Ruby's GNU GPL2 license.
