Absolute newbie question: source code location

Hi everyone,

Regarding source code: is ROR like PHP, that the source code is also accessible in the runtime environment on the Web Server and it could be also used for development, too or is it somehow „compiled“ that the sources are not accessible in the runtime environment

Pushes up glasses… Ruby is like PHP in that way – a dynamic, not compiled, language – and RoR is written in Ruby. There are various pre-compiling schemes around, centered either on obfuscation or performance, but they are not the mainstream of Rails development. So for the most part, if you have access to the source, you have access to the program. They are one and the same.
