Hello fellows!

I'm trying to understand symbols. Not what they are, but rather why Ruby 
has them. They are neat and I use them, but effectively you end up with 
the same thing using plain strings, right? So why extend the language? I 
get the feeling I'm missing a big point so please help me out by 
pointing it out to me.

Best regards

Hans-Eric Grönlund
