I literally sighed when I read this about REXML, the XML parser for Ruby:

Some of the common differences are that the Ruby API relies on block enumerations, rather than iterators. For example, the Java code:

for (Enumeration e=parent.getChildren(); e.hasMoreElements(); ) {
  Element child = (Element)e.nextElement(); // Do something with child
}

In Ruby beccomes

parent.each_child{ |child| # Do something with child }
