Re: simple question: pointer equivalent in ruby

OR even

value = 5
othervalue = value
othervalue = 3
value (should be 3)

That is precisely how ruby works by default. If you wanted othervalue to
just take the 'value' of value, i.e. 3, you would use this instead:

value = 5
other = value.dup
puts other #5
other = 3
puts other #3
puts value #5
