Well, I don't know what the values of MAX_ROW and MAX_COL are (as  
compared to the table size), so I don't know if that's part of the  
problem or not. But I just make a quick modification to the standard  
table.rb example program to include a call to extractText():

     extract = FXMenuCommand.new(filemenu, "Extract text")
     extract.connect(SEL_COMMAND) do
       result = @table.extractText(0, @table.numRows - 1, 0,  
@table.numColumns - 1)
       puts result

and this works as expected. Note that I used the default values for  
the last two arguments, but that shouldn't make a difference. If  
you're still having problems, please file a bug report and attach a  
short example program that demonstrates the problem.
