Binary Search Algorithm

A simple binary search algorithm I developed in Ruby. The most interesting thing for me in such a simple algorithm is how the arrangement of data and the choice of data structure can hugely optimize a solution. In this case, we can iterate the array for O(n) solution as well, but the current solution O(logN) will be efficient for large data sets.
