As I read Thomas&Hunt p. 205,  Ruby should build a quoted string with the
text from <<XXX to the next XXX.  But that doesn't happen with some quoted
strings in that block,  as follows.  Why?

# F:\_Projects_Current\_Projects_Ruby\A009-Comments\Comments.rb

for i in 1..3
    puts i.to_s
end

print <<TEST
    xxxx
    yyyy
    "abc"

class A
    def initialize(*args, &block)
      puts '---'
      puts "args <#{ args.inspect }>"
      block.call if block
    end
end
TEST

<<OUTPUT
>ruby Comments.rb

Comments.rb:15: undefined local variable or method `args' for main:Object
(NameError)
>Exit code: 1
