you mean something like this?

"1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10".split(';').inject([]) { |a,i| a << i.to_i }
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]


looking below, where do 11, 12 come from in the desired result?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
raw_data  1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10"
data  aw_data.split(/\;/) #but this gives ["1", "2", "3", "4", "5",
"6", "7", "8", "9", "10"], not [1, 2, 3,...]

#data  1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12] # this is the desired result
