[Solved] What happened to irb?

This is weird. My Arch installation is more than four years old. For almost all of that time, I have used irb. Today I tried to use it and received "command not found".

I searched the packages database and found that package ruby-irb was updated on Jan-11-19. So, I searched my pacman.log (which goes all the way back to Dec-26-14) and there were no occurrences of string ruby-irb, nor of string irb for that matter. So, I conclude that nothing removed irb, and I know that I have used it for years.

I installed package ruby-irb and I can now use irb, again. But, what happened to the irb I've used for years?

Ok, thank you. I doubt that many normal users saw that. Even the packager, himself says he "forgot to mention" it.

Same questions here. Submitted edit to Arch Ruby Wiki to reflect this.
