Hi Jordan,

Thanks.  I'm running ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [i386-mswin32].  How can
I tell if it uses Oniguruma RE ver.5.6.0?

"gem list oniguruma -b" gave me:
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
[nothing]
*** REMOTE GEMS ***
oniguruma (1.1.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.0, 0.9.1, 0.9.0)

Judging by this result,  I'd say the "5.6.0" is the version of the
Cheat Sheet itself; and that I don't have Oniguruma installed.

I've got The Ruby Way, ver. 2, that covers Oniguruma.  But I'm fairly
new to Ruby,  so I wonder whether stepping up to Oniguruma is
prudent.

Any ideas?

Regards,
Richard
