I'm trying to learn Ruby and trying to convert a Perl program at the
same time.  I need to prompt a user to enter a number to select a
processing option.  In Perl, I did it this way:

#
  print STDERR "Enter option: ";
  chomp ($option = <STDIN>);
#

I've searched the web and several books, but I haven't found anything
that works.  It also seems that my system doesn't recognize "gets".  Can
anyone help me out, and maybe post a simple input routine I can look at?
Thanks....
