Hi, I'm trying to print out some xml and don't know what I'm doing. I'm getting this <to_s/> tag in the output. Where is it coming from and how do I get rid of it. Here's my test code. Any help appreciated. CODE: require "builder" class Fruit attr_accessor :name end fruit = Fruit.new() fruit.name = "Apple" xml = Builder::XmlMarkup.new(:indent=>2) xml.fruit do xml.name(fruit.name) end f = File.new("test.xml", "w") f.print(xml) OUTPUT: <fruit> <name>Apple</name> </fruit> <to_s/> Thanks, Ted

The to_s comes from print getting something that is not a String and coercing it with to_s which the Builder object thinks is an empty tag. -Rob Rob Biedenharn http://agileconsultingllc.com Rob@AgileConsultingLLC.com
