What the??  I just spent two days trying to figure out why I couldn't
reproduce the example in "Ruby in 20 minutes" and get it to work.  After
examining my code line for line against the example code and not being
able to detect any error, I was assembling several code examples into a
text file to post here, when I happened to notice  'elsif'.    Why
didn't Ruby flag 'elseif' as an error?


Does Ruby try differentiate itself in ridiculous ways like that just for
the sake of being different?  And why isn't something like that
explicitly pointed out in a beginning tutorial?  So far, I have to give
Ruby two thumbs down.
