First of all: I’m a German pupil who is just learning ruby and English
I have a xml-file in which most elements are standing for
function-/method-calls. I “convert” each element in a
Ruby-method-call(string) and add this method-call to one string.
Because I need to call these methods several times I used eval until now
to parse this string.
But someone from the German mailinglist told me that eval is slowly and
that programming with eval isn’t that good.
I think do parse the xml-file again and again must be very slow, or I’m
So: what can I use instead of eval?
