File extension .RB
The RB file extension is a file used in programs associated with the .RB language. RB stands for Ruby, which is an open-source programming language that was created by Yukihiro Matsumoto in the mid-1990s. It is designed to be easy to use and read. It is popularly used for web development, system administration and scripting, and game development.
RB files are source code that can be written in a text editor and executed by the interpreter of Ruby. They are plain text files that contain instructions written in Ruby's syntax. RB files can be recognized by the “#!” "shebang" line at the beginning of the file as well as the .rb extension. Source code files with other similar extensions that can store Ruby programs include .rbw, .rhtml, ruby, and .rbx.
RB source code files can be opened, edited, compiled, and interpreted using various programming software, such as RubyMine, ActiveState Komodo, Notepad++, and Sublime Text Editor. They can also be compiled into RBC (Ruby Bytecode) files which can then be executed by the Ruby virtual machine. Additionally, many programming libraries including Rails are written in Ruby, so they can also interpret, compile, open, and edit RB Files.
Programs for WINDOWS system
Programs for LINUX system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .RB) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .RB extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .RB file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .RB extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .RB extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .RB file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .RB file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .RB file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .RB file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .RB file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
