recursive deep copy

hello,

  It's a little bit hard question:
  i've a problem when working on arrays. i'm doing a deep copy of an
array (a find request result) by doing it :
@array = new.Array(@original_array)
it just copies the first level, under levels arrays and hashes are not
include in deep copy!

some can help?

What about this :

new_array = old_array

He wants a deep copy, and that's neither deep nor a copy. It's just a
new reference to the same array:

   array = [1,2,3]
   new_array = array
   new_array.push(4)
   p array # [1, 2, 3, 4]

thank you guys, "@array =
Marshal::load(Marshal.dump(@original_array))" works perfectly
