Hello Peter

Thank you very much for the reply but for your solution to work i would 
need the file name of the original file being read. I am inputing my 
file via ARGV[0] so i cannot specify the original filename. Seeing as 
the variable x contains the entire file is there a way i can output x 
into a new file and name the file with a variable?
I simply want a way to rename the input file :(

Other than this hickup i am enjoying Ruby quite a lot and have managed 
to make it do everything i want so far.

Thank you :)
