ROR confusion using methods
Okay, I am very new to ruby. I have written several standard ruby programs and now I am starting to learn ROR. I am a bit confused though. In a standard ruby program I create a method and then in the main program I pass a variable to the method and have the method print out a value. Now, I know I use the controller file and the index file to do this, but I am unsure exactly how to include the method and to call it.
I need to do something like this in ROR, but I am not sure just how. It is simple in just a standard ruby program. Any help would be appreciated.

If it's just a "standard ruby program," why are you using Rails?
Also, google "MVC" and click the first link.

Suggest you visit rubyonrails DOT org and try the tutorial to see how to build a rails app from scratch. That will show you the basic conventions. From there you should be able to map your application to the rails framework.
