Hi,

There's a little nonsense going on in the fix I provided... I posted  
an experiment I think.

> class String
> def blank?
>   instance_method(:blank?) rescue def blank?
>                                    self !~ /\S/

> end
> end


class String
   instance_method(:blank?) rescue def blank?
                                    self !~ /\S/
                                  end
end

Is what I'm actually using.

There are other ways to do it, as you point out in another posting.

Sorry about that,
Bob
