Simplest RVM Installation Guide

Run this command to install the rvm command, a very simple and intuitive “Ruby Version Manager”:
mkdir -p ~/.rvm/src && cd ~/.rvm/src && rm -rf ./rvm && \
git clone --depth 1 git:// && \
cd rvm && ./install && \
echo "if [[ -s $HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm ]]; then source $HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm; fi" >> ~/.bashrc
Edit: Oops, I guess it can get even simpler: (Yes, the ‘\’ is intentional.)
\curl -L | bash
Now use it:
rvm install 1.9.3

    Sorry to say, this is out-of-date. See the first page of the RVM website: for the current RVM installation script. [edited: shameless promotion, not relevant]
