Hi,

I don't really get what you're trying to do. Do you want to store the 
dictionary data as structured text and then parse it and put it into a 
Ruby hash? And do you want to use Ruby's syntax to make up your own data 
format?

If so: Why not use a common data format like XML or JSON? Those are 
mature and already have parsers. And if you're going to have a lot of 
data, you're better off using a database, anyway.
