ruby 1.9.1: Encoding trouble: broken US-ASCII String

| | + 322799 [b.candler@po] I found that too, but was confused by the "broken US-ASCII string"

| |   322814 [b.candler@po] It seems to go against DRY to have to write "r:binary" or "rb:binary"
| |   + 322817 [dave@pr gp o] You used to have to do that. In recent HEADS, rb sets binary encoding
| |   + 322827 [matz@ru y- a] open(path, "rb") is your friend.  It sets encoding to binary.
