I am starting with Rails and I am wandering questions about Rails
possibilities. Actually, I want to design an application that has
particular needs and I would like to know wether Rails can do them. As I
am newbie with Rails, I ask you these questions.
Basically, it is possible to execute shell commands from a rails pages
(eg: I want to launch a c++ program)?
Can it define a drawing area? ( if I want to draw charts and so on ) ?
can we parse xml files?
Actually, my question is, can Rails the same thing that Ruby?
Thanks a lot,
