So, when i first started to learn ruby *about a week or two ago*, my cousin *who showed me ruby* had me start on a program called hackety-hack, which is i type of tutorial thing, it kind of gives programs a sort of gui also. But i have noticed you cant do some of the same commands as on the irb main. In hackety-hack there was an *ask* command, so you could do things like var = ask("how old are you")... Im wondering if/ or what is the acctual *ask* command?? Because im trying to write a program for my dad *a chef* which vendors have the cheapest prices, and its getting annoying writing out all their prices into 2 different arrays. it would be nice if it could be like Array_1 = ask("put in the 1st vendors prices) Array_2 = ask("put in 2nd vendors prices) *and then i could go on and subtract the two arrays* Sorry if this is a totaly idiotic question :(!? Much thanx for anyones help!
