I am somewhat new to Ruby, coming from about 10 years of Perl programming, 
6 professionally.

In perl, it is easy to create new variables with variable names that are 
defined in another variable. For example:

$var_name = "myVar";
${"$var_name"} = 10;

would define a new variable $myVar the value 10.

Is there a way to do this in Ruby? I suspect there must be but haven't been 
able to figure this out yet.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Andy
