Hi,

I copied this sample to a test folder.  The code warned that "this example
depends on the html-parser extension."  I:
-- downloaded html-parser-2 from
http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/html-parser-2/
-- unpacked the result into a working folder
-- ran setup in that folder,
-- targeted the output to Ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\, which yielded
formatter.rb.  html-parser.rb and sgml-parser.rb
-- ran Dilbert.rb in the SciTE environment under Windows2000Pro
-- got following error messages:

I:/Program Files/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/protocol.rb:83:in `connect':
undefined method `timeout' for #<Net::InternetMessageIO closed>
(NoMethodError)
 from I:/Program Files/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/protocol.rb:65:in `initialize'
 from I:/Program Files/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:422:in `open'
 from I:/Program Files/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:422:in `do_start'
 from I:/Program Files/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:409:in `start'
 from I:/Program Files/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:324:in `start'
 from dilbert.rb:81:in `getImageData'
 from dilbert.rb:58:in `initialize'
 from dilbert.rb:98:in `new'
 from dilbert.rb:98

 I found that there is an htmltest.rb program which I might use to test my
installation,  but could only find member descriptions for it at
http://borges.rubyforge.org/RDoc/files/lib/Borges/Test/HtmlTest_rb.html and
no site from which to download it.

I'm running ruby 1.8.0 (2003-08-04) [i386-mswin32]

Any suggestions?

TIA,
Richard
