Ive been reading a lot of posts about how great Ruby is so I want to try it out for myself; the developer I currently use is jGrasp and I was wondering if that supported Ruby files. If it doesn't can someone direct me to a Ruby developer and compiler please.

You can download the Ruby interpreter from if you're on Windows. If you're on Linux and OSX you could also use your favorite package management system like apt-get or port. Here's a nice, compact tutorial for installing Ruby on these mainstream OSes.

As far as IDE's go, Eclipse has a plugin (called RDT), Netbeans has a plugin, and the creator of IntelliJ IDEA have recently released RubyMine. I currently use TextMate myself, which is really just a glorified text editor, because I'm mostly working on small scripts and utilities (I'm working on a Java-based product at the moment). For serious development, however, I'd look into one of the above IDEs.
