^ Accurate Timing in ruby
165263 [erichof425 y] Believe it or not, I'm attempting to make an action-driven game with ruby.  Is there a way to get the time in milliseconds since the program started, or something similar?  I've tried using Time.now.to_f, but all too often that value will be the same in two consecutive update calls, causing jumps in motion and "infinite" fps readings.

^ Function Variable and Return Value References
165383 [erichof425 y] In C++, one thing that is certain is that all variables passed into functions and all return values are actually copies.  Therefore, the functions can't manipulate their arguments directly.  As everyone knows, the easiest way to get this effect is to pass in by reference.  This way a copy is not made; the actual variable is passed in, allowing direct modification.  A similar idea can be used with return values or even without a function at all.
