> partly to avoid the low level details that C programming demands. I'm going offtopic here, but I suggest you learn C. If you ever want to interface with your operating system or a 3rd party library where Ruby bindings don't exist, you're going to need it. Knowing C will also give you the ability to read and understand the Ruby source code (well, most of it), which may in turn allow you to submit patches where you think they're needed. It certainly doesn't hurt on a resume. Regards, Dan This communication is the property of Qwest and may contain confidential or privileged information.
