Whenever I try to get input, it doesn't register the 'Backspace' key. Also, it never accepts the 'Enter' first time. I always have to push 'Enter' after my input usually 3 times before it actually inputs it.
my_var = gets.chomp
If I wanted to enter 'Hello', I would have to type it followed by pressing the return key 3 times before it actually entered it.
Now I did find a way to solve this using...
STDOUT.flush my_var = gets.chomp
1) This seems wierd having to enter that EVERY time before I want input?
2) It still doesn't solve the problem of registering backspace.
If I was to type directly 'Hello World' but with two accidental keystrokes such as this: Hello Worpold
Even if I used the backspace so it appeared as I was entering: Hello World
If I then went on to 'puts' or 'print' that it would output: Hello Worpold
Know how I can fix it so it accepts backspace and know any other ways of missing out STDOUT.flush?
Thanks in advance
P.S. Apart from this Ruby seems nice and I've already, within my first day of learning, created a whole program that grows a tree and you can pick oranges
Is there a way of specifiying a variable that can be read/equality tested both in a class and not in a class - in the program seperate?
