All about Struct

This guest post is by Steve Klabnik . Steve is a Rubyist, writer, and teaches Ruby and Rails classes with Jumpstart Lab. He maintains Draper, Hackety Hack, and Shoes, and

Astute readers will notice that I left off the ‘use,' rvm defaults to ‘use' if you don't give it a different command. Check it out: $ ruby -v ruby 1.9.2p0 (2010-08-18 revision 29036) [x86_64-darwin10.4.0] $ cd hackety-hack.com $ ruby -v ruby 1.8.7 (2010-08-16 patchlevel 302) …
