the power of Ruby and #ruby-lang
Two days ago, I mentioned I'd like to be able to read .dbf files.
Yesterday, I mentioned it again. One of the replies I got was
essentially "it's easier than you think, just build it. here's a link
to the specs. I've written an xBase interface before, and I'll help
you if you get stuck."
That said, I looked. 24 hrs later, I now have a tool that will open
and read .dbf files - including memos. It can't write them yet, but
I've spec'd that out, and have the basics done (and tested).
When I started this, I knew nothing about the xBase file specs, ...email@example.com is dead

Over on the pragprog list, Ron Jeffries suggested that it might be
interesting to implement Ruby in Ruby. I thought -- but could not find
quickly -- that someone had started such a project. I realise right now that
this might be much slower, but it would seem to me to make it easier to make
something like Rite or some other bytecode system possible, wouldn't it?

ruby-talk is fine for discussions; ruby-core is great for technical

Hello Ruby fans.
The binary 1.9 package that's foudn on the ruby website doesn't seem to
either a) contain zlib.dll or b) have it statically linked in. This
causes problems when trying to run gem.
I personally solved this by just installing my 1.9 over my old 1.8 and
copying zlib1.dll to zlib.dll (found in ./bin).
Is this intended or an oversight? I imagine it'd stump people who go
straight for the 1.9 download...

Apparently the virtual host config was lost as part of the
crack recovery/validation etc. Which means that modruby.net
serves the same content as ruby-lang.org, which means there seems to be
nowhere from which I can download mod_ruby at the moment. Does anyone
know of an alternative site?
I love google.

I can't get to it either. Also, it appears the gateway is having

I have looked at these three GUI's for Ruby, and would like to know
which the community feels is the better of these three (or is there a
better one that I haven't listed). I am building small applications
with UI's that are not too complicated, and wrapping the apps into
exe files with rubyscript2exe. I like the smaller size of the final
product when using Tk, but the native look of Fx and Wx. What has been
your experience with GUI toolkits for Ruby?

but that only returns "true" from within a script. (I see the correct

I also tried :

I've been doing Ruby for a small while now, but I'm a newbie when it
comes to parsing. I've been digging around, but still can't seem to
find the answer. I was wondering if Ruby itself has classes that I can
use to parse ruby source code into a parse tree.

(http://i.loveruby.net/en/projects/racc/), but I didn't want to have to

didn't have to (maybe it's not that hard?). I wasn't able to find a
