Hello,

This is a recent summary of ruby-dev mailing list.


[ruby-dev:20097] jcode.rb

Akira Yamada proposed a new library that makes String to handle
Japanese multi byte characters. There already is a similar library
jcode.rb, but this one extends a String object for adding and
replacing functions.
This new style library is inspired by jstring library developed by
Hiroyuki Komatsu.  Komatsu also posted implementation samples of
the library.


[ruby-dev:20086] Re: Roundoff problem with Float and Marshal

This might be off-topic for this thread.  Related with the messages
of same title in ruby-talk, Nobu Nakada posted a sample implementation
of Algorithm Bellerophon and AlgorithmR in Ruby based on articles that
Rudi Cilibrasi recommended for him.
The sample code does not fix the problems actually but it may be a clue
for people wants to know how to handle floating point numbers.
