Hi everyone,

could anyone please enlighten me as to what ruby wants to tell me by

"[BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i486-linux]

Aborted(core dumped)

The script I am running is a textparser, that takes strings, splits them
and uses the resulting array for a subsequent operation

The above error occurred, when the script reached a rather long line
(took me quite a bit to identify the bugger..).
Couldnt find much on that while googling around, so whats the deal with
that? I dont see any problem with the respective string (fits the
pattern that I use on all the other strings, too) other than that it is
quite a bit longer than the rest (~1000 characters).

Hope someone knows more about that!
