Hi

I've been using Python for years, but looking into Ruby and rails.

Is the following a sensible way to use Ruby blocks?

def time_method()
    t1=Time.now
    if block_given?
        result=yield()
    end
    return Time.now-t1,result
end

t,rsp=time_method do
    Net::HTTP.get_response(URI.parse(url).host, URI.parse(url).path)
end

My problem is that both time_method and get_response returns a value
that i need. Should i use a closure instead of the above?

Thanks.
