Any advice or tidbits for newbies starting out with Ruby? Would be greatly appreciated.


What do you mean by writing out a function? Sounds like you've got the words a bit wrong and there's just no way to interpret that

How can a number be printed as stars on a single line? Do you mean printing that number of stars? So 5 would print *****? If so, wouldn't that just be iterating five times, printing a star each iteration? You'd need to elaborate a bit more on what's stopping you.
