Thanks, matz.

I have worked around the problem using Array#each_with_index.

n  =  nil
a  =  ["this","is","his","book"]
a.each_with_index {|r,i|
      n = i if  (r =~ /^is$/)
      break if n
}

And to get the effect of  Array # rindex just comment out the break
statement.

Any other suggestions are highly welcome.
