    Ruby is a general-purpose scripting language. It does a similar job to Python or Perl. Try searching Wikipedia for a full history.

    Ruby is used for any purpose that is suitable for an interpreted language, which usually means programs that require a very small executable or have very specific timing needs would not be written in Ruby.

    Ruby was created because the author didn't like Perl or Python.

    All languages are eventually machine language--the langauge the chip is designed for. Most chips have alot of similarity in their language like all the 32-bit intel chips, though some have extra features. Then, assembly language is used, since machine language is binary and not written by hand. c or c++ then compile assembly language code.
