  very strange...  what version of ruby are you running?  this code 
copied and pasted works for me in 1.8.7 and 1.9.2.  are you absolutely 
sure the .txt file is in the same directory as the program, and that 
it's called "text.txt"?  can't think of any other reason it wouldn't 
work...

  good luck,
