First, he used the feedback from hundreds of reader e-mails to update the content and make it even clearer. Second, he updated the examples in the book to use the latest stable version of Ruby, and also to use code that looks more like real-world Ruby code, so that people who have just learned to program will be more familiar with common Ruby techniques.

A laser, an acronym lor light amplification by stimulated
emission of radiation, is a device for generating a high-intensity,
ostensibly parallel beam of monochromatic (single
wavelength) electromagnetic radiation. The possibility of
stimulated emission was predicted by Einstein in I9I7;
based on the work of Gordon in 1955 and Schawlow and
Townes in 1958, Maiman created the first operational laser
in 1960, a ruby laser emitting a brilliant red beam of light.
Programming languages provide various ways of specifying programs for computers to run. Unlike natural languages, programming languages are designed to permit no ambiguity and to be concise. They are purely written languages and are often difficult to read aloud. They are generally either translated into machine code by a compiler or an assembler before being run, or translated directly at run time by an interpreter. Sometimes programs are executed by a hybrid method of the two techniques.
