Hello,

at work I have written an http-client in Perl and I wanted to do the
same at home with Ruby

I took the following code out the of new Ruby Book

--------------
#!/usr/local/bin/ruby -w

require 'net/http'

h = Net::HTTP.new("www.pragmaticprogrammer.com", 80)

resp, data = h.get2('/index.html') 
puts "code: = #{resp.code}"
puts "Message: #{resp.message}"

#resp.each {|key, val| printf "%-14s = %-40.40s\n", key, val}

print data[0..55]
----------


the output is a follows:

code: = 200
Message: OK
./web.rb:13: undefined method `[]' for nil (NameError)   


oddly, the variable "data" is nil. I have tried nearly to hours to figure out 
why, but I don't find it. maybe I am just blind, but does somebody
have an idea??
