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.
