What is Ruby?
Ruby is not just a programming language, but an entire philosophy about programming. It makes programming fun, productive, and rewarding. Most programs consist of code that needs to be organized into functions. And so most Ruby programs consist of classes and modules containing useful functions for interacting with the real world, operating on text, working with objects, creating GUIs, doing system administration tasks, building web applications… you name it. Ruby is at its heart a toolkit for accessing existing libraries like OpenSSL and providing something like Visual Basic style syntactic sugar to make working with them fun.
What is Dpkg?
DPKG is the software at the base of the package management system in the free operating system Debian and its derivatives. It is currently used to install, remove, and provide information about Debian packages; eventually, it will be used to manage any kind of binary or source package. It was first released as a separate program (dpkg) alongside the old .deb packaging format to enable it to run on non-Debian systems, but has since become an integral part of .deb processing.
