Need help to learn ruby
i am having good knowledge of programming languages like c,c++, php,asp and mysql.
i want to learn ruby, can any one provide me some resource details for the same?
This may move a little slow for you since you already have a good grasp of programming in general, but it's a lot of fun. If you work your way to the end you should know enough Ruby to start writing simple applications. If you remember it all then you can move on to learning the APIs.

This site also comes highly recommended, although I haven't looked into it myself.
Finally, here are links to the official Ruby tutorials and Why's guide to Ruby (very funny).

If you like to learn by examples this one is quite new and good one:
You can find lots of free ruby books on the net.

One thing to be aware of is that the Ruby language is still somewhat of a moving target and much of the documentation and examples out there on the Internet refers to older versions of the language.
The current stable version of Ruby is 1.8.6. You should ensure that you are using this version if possible.
As far as books go, the current definitive book is the Pickaxe book (Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide, 2nd Ed.,
by Thomas, Fowler & Hunt)
