Feature #10395

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) over 5 years ago

This would make erb more useful from the command line. Granted the use of Binding#eval is dangerous so one has to be careful. Newer versions of Ruby have Binding#local_variable_set which can be used instead but this works with Ruby 2.0.0.
