I guess I over-simplified.  I really want to do computations based on
each element and compute my output.  However, it's slightly different
for the last element.  I would like to detect the last element in the
iteration.

For example:

     bottom_items.each{ |item|
        do_something_with(item[0], item[1], item[2])
	if_not_last_item_do_this    
     }

Thanks,
