Its functionality can be utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs like: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK).

RMagick is a binding from Ruby to the ImageMagick image manipulation library. RMagick is a complete interface to ImageMagick. RMagick 1 and RMagick 2 are the two RMagick versions. RMagick 2 is the future of RMagick which works with the latest Ruby version
