There's some "normal" :) trash at
http://dev.rubycentral.com/ref/ref_c_matchingdata.html 

begin mtch.begin( n ) -> anInteger  

Returns the offset of the start of the n^{:0055:th}:0055: element of the
match array in the string. 
 

It's at the documentation for 'end' too. And probably elsewhere.

BTW. Did I remembr t tll xmpl whr 'match[i] -> anObject' s rplcd wth
'mtch[i] -> anObject' sn't that much shorter but much harder to read. And it
seems there's no built-in 'match' so it should be available for use. :)
