Hello,

i'm new to ruby, and working mostly with text.
i have this very simple program that reads a file and replaces all '\'
with a whitespace. (rtf to txt conversion is causing an endless
occurence of \'s).
the way i do it :

txt = "Messages posted to this group will make your email address
visible to anyone on the Internet. \"
puts txt.gsub('\' , ' ')

produces an error:
test.rb:1: unterminated string meets end of file

i'd like to know what i'm doing wrong, or is there another way of
doing it properly.

thanks
t
