Well, I am going through this my usual way, which is just brute force
string manipulation. It’s still my first day with Ruby. Then I see
Both forms iterate through str, matching the pattern (which may be a
Regexp or a String). For each match, a result is generated and either
added to the result array or passed to the block. If the pattern
contains no groups, each individual result consists of the matched
string, $&. If the pattern contains groups, each individual result is

And I think, oooh, I bet that would be cool to use here. But my regexp
