[ruby-dev:17703] Re: Getting CGI argument as scalars

  In this thread, Nobuyoshi Nakada has noted that he had imported
  OptionParser (optparse.rb) to the CVS repository.  This is the
  preparation to bundle RDtool into the standard package.

[ruby-dev:17706] self in block

  Isao Masaki has posted original article, and many interesting
  responses are given on this idea.

  Matz has noted that he is examining to introduce "real" function
  object. Details has not been given yet.

  Takaaki Tateishi has proposed a new method `call_current_block',
  which calls the current block itself (It achieves recursive
  block call). e.g.

    fact = lambda {|n|
        if n == 0
          1
        else
          n * call_current_block(n-1)
        end
    }
    p fact[1]   # 1
    p fact[5]   # 120

  This idea has been rejected.
