In irb, the method "one\ntwo\nthree".split worked fine

but in  a file..
-------------------------------
@text = "

line one
line two
line three
"

@lines = @text.split(/\n/)
-------------------------------

.. it fails: "private method `split' called for nil:NilClass
(NoMethodError)"

After getting the array of lines, again I need to call split() on each
line, then joing them with ", "

(basically I need a CSV file for 14,000 lines verb annotation from
WordNet)

It's late, so I probably could not figure this out myself tonight.  Any
help is welcome.  Thank you.
