Fastest way to remove this strange character

Hello
I was trying out the roo gem and encountered this issue. when i do a
object.sheets, it seems to spit out the array and adds \000 for every
letter of the sheet name
for eg.
currentTrade becomes c\000u\000r\000r\000e\000n\000t\000T\000r\000a
\000d\000e\000

which is the fastest way to remove \000 from the array.

irb(main):005:0> ss=Excel.new(“E:\Documents and Settings\TTSSR0149
\Desktop\orderingsystem.xls”)

irb(main):003:0> ss.sheets()
=> [“c\000u\000r\000r\000e\000n\000t\000T\000r\000a\000d\000e\000”, “M
\000i\000s
\000s\000e\000d\000T\000r\000a\000d\000e\000”, “S\000c\000a\000n\000s
\000”, “c\0
00l\000o\000s\000e\000d\000”]

irb> s = “c\000u\000r\000r\000e\000n\000t\000T\000r\000a\000d\000e\000”
irb> n = “”
irb> s.unpack(“S*”).each {|c| n << c.chr}
=> [99, 117, 114, 114, 101, 110, 116, 84, 114, 97, 100, 101]
irb> n
=> “currentTrade”

Not sure if this is fastest or ‘best’…

It’s unicode - so you may use iconv to convert to whatever 8-bit
encoding you want.
If you want to have the ‘fastest’ one - compare it to other approaches
with Benchmark.
