Hello all. I’m trying to use the gets function, only I want to read
in a file and make separators any sort of punctuation(",", “:”, “\n”,
My problem is trying to understand how the sep_string=$/ option is
supposed to work:
How can I specify what sep_string is so that when I do something for a
while loop on gets, I can get each word instead of a line of text, or
lines of text with various punctuation I don’t want?
A second note, I’m not sure what $/ is supposed to mean. Is that the
separator for newline(which i thought was \n)?
Thanks in advance.
