HI

Just a quick check. I am starting into Ruby with little interest in
Ruby on Rails (its good to know its there though). I want to use Ruby
as a more data centric means. So in my first case I want to extract
data from websites and put it in a suitable format xml, csv etc for
use in excel or later for use in a db application such as mysql or
postgre.

I am not nuts am I?

I was looking at several comparison and I thought that Ruby dealt with
lists and data in a logical fashion.
