(I ordered for a copy of Mastering Regular Expressions. Should be in my
snail mailbox anytime soon. In the meantime ... )

How do I tell Ruby to use the content of a variable as the pattern,
rather than interpreting the variable name as a literal?


v = "aeiou"

Then, in

"goodness" =~ /[v]/

I'd like v to be interepreted not as a literal but as a variable name.

Thanks
