Ruby has above all an easy, elegant and nice way to be extended with 
C/C++ language, this is the true success key of Ruby. You can easily use 
the huge C/C++ code libraries and for this reason it is even used with 
success in scientific computation 
(http://www.artcompsci.org/rel/index.html). You can write everything in 
Ruby and for particular need, write it easily in C/C++ without going banana.
