^ p vs. print
368914 [abder.rahman] require "rubygems" # Not in the example
+ 368915 [astahl hi5.c] Ruby uses "puts", not "print".  "p" is short for "puts".
| + 368917 [sutniuq gmx.] This is definitely wrong. #p is quite another method than #puts and yet
| | + 368918 [wagner.andre] Actually, "p x" is equivalent to "puts x.inspect", not "puts x"
| | + 368919 [colinb2r goo] This is definitely wrong. #p is quite another method than #puts and yet
| | | 368923 [astahl hi5.c] Sorry, my wording was off.  Understood that they're different methods.
