Hiya

just hoping someone can shed some light on this.  If i were to prompt
the user to enter a search parameter to look across a bigger string of
text using:

print "please enter search term: "
stdout.flush
string1 = gets.chomp

i run into trouble when the user enters non english search terms.  how
can i set this up to allow the user to enter other language words?
chinese/russian/etc.

thanks, seems like a simple question... but i couldn't find anything on
it in the forums
