Trying to understand the flow of Ruby and Measures

Okay, I'm not a neophyte. I have a little programming, e.g. PHP, Javascript. Am learning how to code in Ruby when I have a free moment. Just standardized on Sketchup, OpenStudio, and EnergyPlus for my energy modeling platform. I'm trying to understand how Ruby works with OpenStudio. I understand the classes and defs, and am slowly learning how Ruby uses them. What I seem to be missing is how Ruby scripts (.rb) file interact with OpenStudio and how to use them.

I've searched for some documentation but have only come up with "You can use ruby scripts to do . . .", which is exciting except I can't seem to find out "how" to use them.

Can someone point me to documentation that doesn't need a PhD to read?

Thanks, Mark
