IronRuby Code

the IronRuby source code is available here http://iunknown.typepad.com/IronRuby-Pre-Alpha1.zip

Just had a quick look....

Mostly looks ok. However, I don't like their approach to unit testing. In fact what it has is really Acceptance Tests. It shows in some of the complicated methods they have ended up with. Lots of odd bits of code all around actually... Still! good to see some progresss :-)

IronPython's codebase suffered from the same problems :( hopefully with community contributions being encouraged a little more we might see some improvement over time.

still! its quite cool :-)

Hopefully it will take off.

Iron Python has been around for a while yet it dosnt seem *THAT* popular. Though I think Ruby has a little more *cool* factor that might make it take off.
