Just a simple test, to avoid unnecessary hairtearing. 

It happens me from time to time that due to non-intentionally pressing
some stupid keycombination, a non-printable character finds its way to
my code, and then ruby mystically chokes on it (the terminal doesn't
show any weird upon this).

Then I check my file foo.rb with "ruby -ne 'p $_' foo.rb", and I
immediately see if this is the case.
