Bug in TkComm::list?

I’m running into a weird behavior while using TkComm::list and
TkComm::tk_tcl2ruby

ruby-1.9.1-p378 > data = “2.00 21 2”
=> “2.00 21 2”
ruby-1.9.1-p378 > TkComm::list(data)
=> [2.0, 21, 2]
ruby-1.9.1-p378 > TkComm::tk_tcl2ruby(data)
=> [2.0, 21, 2]

With those methods, I’m losing a zero…

But if I break down and just use split:

ruby-1.9.1-p378 > data.split
=> [“2.00”, “21”, “2”]

Is this a bug? or poor use of the TkComm::list and tk_tcl2ruby methods?

Those methods convert a tcl string to a Numeric object, if the string
can be a description of a numeric value.
If you want to get each element as a string, please use
TkComm.simplelist.

irb(main):001:0> data = “2.00 {21 22 23} 2”
=> “2.00 {21 22 23} 2”
irb(main):002:0> TkComm::list(data)
=> [2.0, [21, 22, 23], 2]
irb(main):003:0> TkComm::simplelist(data)
=> [“2.00”, “21 22 23”, “2”]
