This won't even compile because there is no "return" statement.  Also,
using an array to pass two values is at best sub optimal.  And since
you do not provide any details about the class at hand nobody can
really help you.

Actually, we can make this even *more* rubyish:

def get_text_characters holder_for_start_and_length
end
