Print all permutations of a string in ruby

Ruby program for Print all permutations of a string. Here more information.

#  Ruby program for
#  Print all permutations of a string
class Permutation 
	#  Swapping two string elements by index
	def swap(text, size, a, b) 
		#  Check valid location of swap element
		if ((a >= 0 && a < size) && (b >= 0 && b < size)) 
 			# Get first character
            first = text[a]
            text[a]=text[b]
            text[b]=first
		end
		return text
	end

	#  Method which is print all permutations of given string
	def findPermutation(text, n, size) 
		if (n > size) 
			return
		end

		if (n == size) 
			print(text, "\n")
			return
		end

		i = n
		while (i < size) 
			#  Swap the element
			text = self.swap(text, size, i, n)
			self.findPermutation(text, n + 1, size)
			#  Swap the element
			text = self.swap(text, size, i, n)
			i += 1
		end

	end

end

def main() 
	task = Permutation.new()
	text = "ABC"
	size = text.length
	task.findPermutation(text, 0, size)
	print("\n")
	text = "abcd"
	size = text.length
	task.findPermutation(text, 0, size)
end

main()
