Chad-

	Erb doesn't do anything like that by default. But you can fudge it  
pretty easily:

ez work $ cat include.rb
require 'erb'
def _include(template, bind=binding)
   erb = ERB.new(IO.read(File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__),template)))
   erb.result(bind)
end
ez work $ cat foo.rhtml
<% require 'include' %>
<% 10.times do %>
   <%= _include 'bar.rhtml' %>
<% end %>
ez socialpicks $ cat bar.rhtml
<%= "hello world!" %>
ez work $ erb foo.rhtml


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


   hello world!


	You can't use 'include' because of Module#include so I used  
_include. Have fun!
