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, ...firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi, small public service announcement:
The official Ruby IRC channel is #ruby-lang on Freenode (i.e.
The #ruby channel on the same network should NOT be used at
this time because its administration is in the hands of a
third party (who has, in addition, been absent for a long
time.) There has been a recent increase in people mistakenly
joining that channel rather than #ruby-lang.
Until the administration is transferred to Ruby Central or

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
changes. David Black's RCRchive (rcrchive.net) captures change
requests; RubyForge has trackers for bugs and patches.
There's more than enough places to discuss feedback without adding Yet

The list of ruby success stories page in ruby-lang.org is really lame.

I was searching some stuff about Ruby and found this:
There was a Ruby before "our" Ruby, and it's known as Visual Basic today!=
Something that worried me was these words:

But none of links from http://www.ruby-doc.org/downloads are as user

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...

I can't get to it either. Also, it appears the gateway is having
issues. No emails from ruby-talk since about 1pm MDT.
