This is much easier and more efficient than of the suggestions on this 
site.  You should not have to index anything.

letters = 
'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789'
character = letters.split(//)
ascii=[]
character.each do |a|
    ascii << "#{a} \t #{a[0]}"
  end
  puts ascii
