hi ,
I wondered if it is possible to tell ruby to accept wildcards in arrays 
or lists. I have a function which relys on .each and accepts arrays and 
lists of IP's. Is it possible to use wildcards in an array like

buff = Array(127.0.*.*)

of couse this is not working but is there any way to do this? Or is my 
only option to fill the array "by hand" with a loop with every single IP?

			    jgs     \)           (/
