Hi,

I'm new to this group but have used Ruby for quite a while now (it's a 
great language by the way). In one of my methods I intend to divide a 
Fixnum by a second Fixnum. I'd expected a Fixnum result but get Float back. 
Can anyone give me an idea of what's wrong? The code looks like this:

puts @m.class
puts d.class
puts @m
puts d
     @m /= d
puts @m.class
puts d.class
puts @m
puts d

and the output is:

Fixnum
Fixnum
8
1
Float
Fixnum
8.0
1

Yours, Tore Haug-Warberg
