Switching from C# to Ruby, and learning to write "the Ruby way"... is 
there a better way to get the first and last names from a string?

Assume for simplicity that the the first name is the text up to the 
first space, and the last name is the text after the last space.

def split_name(fullname)
	parts = fullname.split(' ')
	[parts.first, parts.last]
end


This returns me an array so I can do this:

first, last = split_name("Donald P. Q. Duck")

first => "Donald"
last => "Duck"

(man, I love Ruby).

But something about split_name still feels a bit "wrong", like there's a 
more succint Ruby way to return the first and last elements of the 
split() results.

Thanks
Jeff
