I am using the latest version of Ruby on Windows.  When I do the
following in irb:

File.open('sometextfile.txt').readlines

I get an array of unicode characters.  The example in the book I am
following along with, Everyday Scripting with Ruby, shows each array
element as a line from the file.  No Unicode.  How do I get readlines
to work without spitting out unicode?

Thanks,
SA
