> After 4 years, Ruby still hasn't ruined itself.

after working with it for a few months i'm starting to see some holes.

there doesn't seem to be a 'standard' gui that's fully implemented for
ruby. the gui's that AREA available need work. and for newbies they
aren't easy to work with at all.

in tcl/tk you can use this to create a button

button .b -text "quit" -command {exit}
pack .b

i'd really like something like this for ruby (off the top of my head):

class  quit_button < button

       def initalize
           button_text("quit")
           self.show
           placeongrid()
           # you get the idea
       end

       def button_text(t)
           quit_text=t
       end

       def click
           app.cleanup
       end
end


even with my limited knowledge/experience of ruby this is straight
forward to me
