Ruby Programming
Previous Page Home Next Page


A Ruby symbol is the internal representation of a name. You construct the symbol for a name by preceding the name with a colon. A particular name will always generate the same symbol, regardless of how that name is used within the program.


Other languages call this process ``interning,'' and call symbols ``atoms.''
