My Little Ruby Valentine (#192)

Write a program that presents a Valentine’s day card. You may wish to
present text with a design, image or some colorful ASCII. There are no
formal requirements, you may choose to make it as simple, complex, or
creative as you like.

There was no response to this week’s quiz on the mailing list, but
like a ray of hope peeking out through dark clouds there was one
solution:

ruby -e ‘puts [[3,3],9,9,7,5,3,1].map{|t|[t].map{|n|""*n}.join("
").center(9)}’

(posted via Twitter: http://twitter.com/mrcryn/status/1217357005)

I will summarize my feelings with a modified version of Ryan’s solution:

puts
[[3,0,0,0,3],[4,0,0,5],[5,0,0,4],[4,0,0,3],[3,0,0,2],[1,0,0,2],[0,1]].map{|t|[t].map{|n|""*n}.join("
").center(13)}
