  387379 [bbxx789_05ss] So when you read the thread title,  "Beginner needing help", you thought
  387403 [phrogz@me co] No, that was not my intention. I don't personally find it unintelligible; indeed, other than the name of the method "tap" I find that pattern to look more elegant then a clumsy repetition of variable names. (If the method were named something like "named" or "using" or "with" my particular usage might read slightly better.)

| + 387358 [cluny_gissla] Thanks, that's helpful
| + 387361 [steve@st ve ] Agreed. Ruby 1.9 has been the standard version of Ruby for almost two years now.
+ 387374 [josh.cheek@g] I use 1.9.2 (p290) by default, and occasionally 1.8.7 and 1.9.3 (preview)
+ 387378 [phrogz@me co] 1.9 is the future, faster, "better", and sufficiently stable and well-supported at this point.

The "SourceFile" module associates with each value string the file that it was defined in, so that you can later see where the values were defined. Use a module for this is both tricky
