YARV No Longer an Acronym for "You Acknowledge the Reek of Vapors" #

by why in inspect

Good thing gabriele renzi is out there, because I’ve been off my shoe this week. Funny story: he was out reading blogs and he stumbled acrosst a real blog’s post. Namely, Minero Aoki has Rails running on YARV 0.4.0.

 /var/www/rails/testsite % /usr/local/pkg/yarv/bin/ruby script/server
 => Booting WEBrick...
 => Rails application started on
 => Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options
 [2006-02-20 10:40:23] INFO  WEBrick 1.3.1
 [2006-02-20 10:40:23] INFO  ruby 1.9.0 (2006-02-14) [x86_64-linux]
 [2006-02-20 10:40:23] INFO  WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=25032 port=3000

This is just like that feeling you get when you look up in the sky and a legion of manskunks is carrying your uncle away. Apocalycious. (gabriele’s blog is right here.)

To be clear: Like Chris Williams says, this isn’t like stable or anything. It’s just one of those, you know, hey, wow, YARV is really spreading its wings here.

Wait wait, someone explain this to a relative newbie.

YARV means… speed?

Yes. I am confused as well. What is this fabled YARV ?

YARV is a virtual machine for Ruby. It is expected to become the core of Ruby 2.0 (a.k.a. “Rite”).

We’re not quite as far as that entry makes it seem. see my post for the nitty gritty.
