    It is indeed. One of the first toys I built in Ruby was a 'Smart File
    Parser' that I could a source and destination, and a list of "jobs" to
    perform on each file. MvFuncList is just one of those "jobs". I've
    also used it to search through a Merchant install, and give me a file
    with all of the MvCreate statements found throughout, among other

    I packaged this with RubyScript2Exe:

    You may find some useful stuff on the Ruby Garden Wiki, my page is a
    bit out of date (tips 1 and 2 are no longer active), but the rest may
    help you:

    If we stir up enough Ruby/Miva geeks, we can start :)

    smarter not harder" mission, which is why this caught my eye!
