Ruby block/method/proc tutorial

This is a well-written tutorial on some of the exotic functional programming aspects of Ruby.  I learned a couple of things.

Oh, and here’s a tutorial on symbols in Ruby  (the :yourname construct).   I must say I was disappointed with the ending – I thought there would be more pizazz.
