Hi.
This is "ruby-dev summary" of last week: 22625-22687.


[ruby-dev:22642] optparse default options
  Minero Aoki asked if the default definition of "--help" option of
  OptionParser would be overspec. (This issue is still open.)

  In this discussion, eban proposed that constant values such as 
  "VERSION", "RELEASE_DATE", "PLATFORM" in ruby/version.c should
  be removed. This was done.

[ruby-dev:22654] overflow when pack integers
  Tanaka Akira threw a question about String#pack, about inconsistent behavior at
  values boundary. See follows:
  http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-dev/22654

  matz noticed this inconsistency, though the fix seemed not so easy.
  Even if it is done by someone, he won't say complaint :)


[ruby-dev:22658] make install-doc
  SHINAGAWA Norihide said that doing "make install-doc" consume
  memory around 200MB - 300MB on OS/2. His working environment which has
  192MB pyshical memory took 5 hours to carry out full build ruby.
  eban agreed that ruby on OS/2 may have a memory leak.


[ruby-dev:22662] NODE_NEWLINE -> NEWILNE flag
  NODE_NEWLINE was removed from current ruby interpreter.
  (It has an impact to ruby's node user like me :-)

  NaHi reported some bugs because of this change.
