If you use TextEdit then you should change the preferences so that
you use plaintext format instead of the Rich/RTF format (default?).
Also you can try google and test some other text editors. There are
really plenty of it.
can someone please point out what i did wrong ?
I think there’s some osx magic stuff that change the suffix of your
file to .txt or .rtf. Try to change the finder.app settings and you
will see it.
p.s. is there any simple free editor program for beginner that will
help me to learn ruby better?
No Texteditor will ever help you to learn a language.
