hi,
i'm trying to read a few text values from single file:

  if File.exists?(file)
      File.open(file, 'r+') do |f|
        value1 = f.gets.strip
        value2 = f.gets.strip
        value3 = f.gets.strip
        value4 = f.gets.strip
      end
    end

each value is stored in separate line and 'strip' above is used only to
get rid of end-of-line characters. is there any easier way to do the same?

thanks,
jm.
