31792 [info mjais.d] lets say I have this module

  31801 [dblack candl] See also ruby-talk:28248 (some comments on this by Guy Decoux).

^ OS-specific implementation
31795 [dcorbin impe] What is the "ruby way" of implementing OS-specific implementations?

31825 [matju sympat] thank you very much. here is some more meat to put in Rubicon. tell me

  31831 [matju sympat] You're on crack.
  31836 [chr_news gmx] No plain, C_17 H_21 NO_4 ;-))

^ Emacs' indentation problem
31832 [mike lepton.] I'm having trouble with emacs' ruby-mode.
31899 [nobu.nokada ] The patch may fix it.

31837 [ptkwt shell1] I got zero responses on this, so I'll rephrase it...

^ Is it a bug in Ruby or in my program
31841 [jacekpodkans] I am using ruby 1.6.4 (2001-06-04) [i586-linux-gnu], and heve encountered

^ [ANN] Devel::Logger -- Lightweight logging utility.
31845 [nahi keynaut] I posted Devel::Logger to RAA.
31893 [leon ugcs.ca] Oh cool! The more the merrier. :-)
31970 [nahi keynaut] Thanks.

^ Re: ruby binary handling (was: The fastest language for binary handling?)
31852 [matz ruby-la] I don't drink, so it never be the truth. ;-)
+ 31871 [bobx linuxma] I think there is a better way to get your point across.  ;)
| 32020 [niko.schwarz] Sure, and I sure didn't want to offend Matz.
+ 31908 [niko.schwarz] Let me think aloud?
  31933 [matz ruby-la] This one is achieved by Ruby M17N; not by subclassing though.

^ ANN: rjab-connection 0.1.0 experimental
31853 [msassak spea] from perl to ruby.

31859 [rich infoeth] Jabber4R is out...finally ;-)

+ 31873 [rich infoeth] Well well, I'm just carrying on quite a conversation with myself ;-)
+ 31981 [rokosm kloka] Jabber support is great!
  32004 [rich infoeth] Thanks

^ Ruby + ViM
31872 [bobx linuxma] I am creating a ruby-menu.vim file that will put some standard stuff
+ 31874 [erik bagfors] A list of classes/methods that you can go directly to.
+ 31876 [ser germane-] Is this, like, visual-select something and ri gets run on it?  Verry cool.

31881 [ddevilliers ] In the Integer class you can return string containing the ASCII character
+ 31883 [dempsejn geo] "A test"[0]
+ 31884 [nobu.nokada ] "A"[0]
+ 31885 [dblack candl] Funny you should include that question mark :-)
| + 31886 [dempsejn geo] i've always wondered what that question mark did :-)
| | 31888 [dblack candl] Yes, though the ? only works with character literals (or perhaps

|   32173 [dblack candl] Yes.  (Isn't that what was wanted?)

+ 31979 [martindemell] A fairly trivial RCR: given the frequency with which this gets asked, is
  31980 [matz ruby-la] We have to define the behavior first.  What if a string is longer than

^ RANT: Ruby GUI API
31882 [ser germane-] I started this rant in another thread, where it was way OT, so I'm moving
+ 31887 [Jean-Francoi] I'm thinking now (but I could change my opinion :->)

| | + 31894 [rich infoeth] I agree here, folks who are interested should look at the SWin/VRuby
| | + 31974 [curt hibbs.c] I also think the SWT approach is very promising. I hope there is someone out
| |   31976 [s3225202 stu] SWT was made by OTI. The same people who made the cross-platform

+ 31900 [alwagner tca] You end up here with a very weak GUI, using only shared features.
| 32034 [ser germane-] People believe this because of AWT.  Certainly, nobody's proven otherwise
| 32048 [erik bagfors] Where do I sign up!?
+ 31906 [info mjais.d] I think you are completely right.
| + 31909 [mcix gmx.net] I do agree on each point.
| | + 31912 [info mjais.d] maybe this would be a good choice for another poll on rubygarden.org??
| | + 31917 [ptkwt shell1] It seems I recall that we had a

| | | | + 31984 [list chromat] I did not mean that the interface description should be read and

| | | |   32081 [james rubyxm] <snip />
| | | |   32207 [ser germane-] Thanks.  Let me rephrase my statement: I believe XML is not a good choice
| | | |   32231 [james rubyxm] I tend to agree. If I'm do S-expressing coding, I don't really want to look
| | | |   32327 [tobiasreif p] what is " S-expressing coding"
| | | + 32040 [ser germane-] Have you been discussing SWT, and how it relates to your goals?
| | |   + 32044 [curt hibbs.c] I have to say the I really like the architecture and implementation of SWT
| | |   | 32073 [ser germane-] Do you think the FreeRIDE group would be able to contribute an idea of
| | |   | 32101 [curt hibbs.c] I think we could do this.
| | |   | 32103 [rich infoeth] I don't know...this may be full of JNI crap.  It may not be simple to
| | |   | 32105 [curt hibbs.c] Good point.
| | |   + 32057 [list chromat] The GTK code in the instant messaging system is 135 lines out of 465.
| | + 32036 [ser germane-] Does GTK provide an embedded toolkit?  Qt and FLTK are both supported on a
| |   32047 [erik bagfors] I run GTK on my ipaq all the time.  Works great.

|   + 31921 [crowell02 li] As a mac user, I'm curious to what extent all this could actually
|   | + 31924 [harryo zipwo] I don't think there's any issue with having more than one "standard"
|   | + 31927 [mcix gmx.net] Nothing wrong in it. It is just that it is a pity to see so many
|   | + 31931 [ptkwt shell1] There may be more commonality between the two than you suppose.
|   |   + 31937 [crowell02 li] Have you seen XUL?
|   |   | + 31941 [gehlker fast] This is just personal opinion but I'd hate to see the Ruby GUI API
|   |   | | + 31942 [vruz ruby-es] is
|   |   | | | 31951 [gehlker fast] I'd give it a try but I can't find FOX for Quartz, my Wintel machine is dead
|   |   | | | 31954 [vruz ruby-es] Ruby
|   |   | | | 31964 [gehlker fast] Ah. Somehow I read the iterators as being in FOX, not FXRuby, so I thought

|   |   | |   + 31992 [alwagner uar] This reply to your post is actually intended for the thread and
|   |   | |   + 32008 [gehlker fast] Duh. Of course. I don't know why that wasn't obvious to me.
|   |   | + 31948 [john.carter ] Hmm. I _very_ much like the idea of XML specifying the semantics and CSS
|   |   | | + 31949 [vruz ruby-es] Java Applets ??  are you being serious ???
|   |   | | + 32011 [ser germane-] I like the *idea* of XUL, but I don't like the implementation/definition.
|   |   | |   32039 [curt hibbs.c] I just want to emphasize for the group that Sean is entirely correct in
|   |   | |   32208 [ser germane-] Can we get a list of the alternatives?
|   |   | + 31985 [list chromat] Yes.  IIRC, interface descriptions are not converted into any
|   |   + 32012 [ser germane-] Fox isn't included on Linux, and FXRuby isn't included with the standard
|   |     + 32021 [alwagner uar] Which is exactly why this remains a bad idea.
|   |     + 32022 [cboos bct-te] Sorry, that's not realistic. I don't know anything about FXRuby and
|   |     | 32209 [ser germane-] I think you misunderstand me.  What I'd like to see is whether or not, with
|   |     + 32023 [vruz ruby-es] Some laws of the marketplace (or whatever you want to call them)
|   |       32226 [ser germane-] Fortunately, Qt doesn't have a stranglehold on the Ruby market.  Yet.
|   |       32229 [alwagner tca] It's open source.  Have at it.  But if I were the author of the Qt bindings

|   + 31947 [alwagner tca] "...have to be provided with...", there's the rub.

  + 31994 [alwagner uar] Thanks, Christian. A well thought out and written post.  I've
