thanks, that works just fine :) . I am writing some methods right now.

a last question maybe: how can I ouptut text on the command line from
within a function?

crit(...) and function_crit(...) don't seem to work, even when I include
the puppet functions using "... loadall" like said in the docs.

thanks in advance,

Subject: [Puppet Users] Integrating Ruby methods into Puppet classes

Hello all,

I am new to puppet and I am currently designing a set of deployment
rules for our company web servers. The Puppet DSL brings me quite
far, but now I could really use the possibility to extend the DSL
with one or two ruby functions.

Example: I would like to iterate over all the IP addresses of a
system, picking out only those which match a certain criteria.
There are method-like things in the DSL, like the template("...")
method for the file class.

Now my question is: Is that possible in general? And if yes - where
is a point where I can read up on this? I am a Ruby Noob (tm) but
firm in quite a few other languages, so some rough hands-on
documentation on how to start should be enough.
You can write your own functions

Puppet ships with quite a few

And there is a good library called puppetlabs-stdlib with many more
