I'm brand new to ruby, as in, one hour!  So along with perhaps
answering my very basic question, please feel free to point me to other
resources on the web

How do I fix the following so that entering 'q' indeed breaks out of
the loop?  I've read the following but think I will need to see an
example to truly understand.

Thanks in advance

BTW I always learn new language basics by figuring out how to convert
to roman numerals


arabic = ' '
while arabic != 'q' do
  puts "Enter a whole number from 1 to 3999 for conversion"
  puts "to Roman Numerals (enter 'q' to exit)"
  arabic = gets
end
