I'm trying to do a substitution with regular
expressions in which the values to substitute are
taken from a hash, prefixed and suffixed with a '%'
and then the value of the hash is used to replace the
tag.

The code is as follows:

template = "Replace %foo% whereever %foo% is"
searchValue="%foo%"
puts template.gsub(/searchValue/,'blah')

This does not seem to work?  Can Ruby use variables in
its expressions for regex??

B.
