<blueadept> what's the opposite of the intersection & command?
<blueadept> i dont want to get the matches, i want to get the array items that have no duplicates
<blueadept> do i have to write one myself?
<blueadept> i'm using the - array command but it's not working
mxweas_ joined #ruby
<Squarepy> blueadept: you mean remove duplicates from one array?
<blueadept> yeah
<Squarepy> why not use array.uniq
<blueadept> hm, thats right

<any-key> I've used auth_logic
<any-key> rails 3.1 has built-in auth iirc
wyhaines joined #ruby
<karstensrage> i have to write my own provider so what should i target?
dbgster joined #ruby
radmacd joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> what does @ do with variables?
<Syzygy_> and %w
<ryanf> any-key: are you talking about has_secure_password?
<ryanf> or is there more auth stuff now?
<any-key> ryanf: dunno, I've heard it mentioned in brief, I haven't played with it myself
<any-key> that might be it though
<ryanf> Syzygy_: @var is an instance variable, %w(a b c) is ['a', 'b', 'c']
<Syzygy_> oh, so %w defines that the following will be an array?
badabim joined #ruby
<ryanf> or %w{a b c} or %w|a b c| or %w`a b c` or %w*a b c*
<ryanf> an array of strings yes
phantasm66 joined #ruby
fatguylaughing joined #ruby
<ryanf> it's just sugar for making an array of strings with less typing
<robyurkowski> my personal favorite is using %q() for quotes
<robyurkowski> makes writing interpreted html really nice
<phantasm66> i am a total n00b w/ regards to ruby (and OOP in general)... my question is more style related....
<Syzygy_> ok, and @ ... could you explain that for me an accordance with stuff like java or C#?
<headius> so weird, why does that trigger my IRC highlight beep?
<headius> someone type %q
<Syzygy_> %p
<Syzygy_> %q
<headius> bizarre
<Syzygy_> I'm stupid
<headius> I wonder why Colloquy beeps on that
<Syzygy_> you can set custom highlights in most IRC clients
<Syzygy_> maybe you did at one point
<headius> oh, what the hell
<headius> type q
<Syzygy_> q
<phantasm66> is it considered bad form (or style) to use a simple case statement in a class (ie: a method is defined... but the case statement would be used to determine (based on the method's argument) a return type of my choosing
<headius> how the hell did 'q' get in my highlight list
minijupe joined #ruby
<headius> I really wanted to have it beep every time someone said the letter 'q' apparently
<ryanf> haha
<phantasm66> i work with a guy who's telling me that true ruby programmers avoid the use of case statements
<robyurkowski> true ruby programmers avoid absolutes
<robyurkowski> only the sith deal in absolutes!
<ryanf> tell that to the rails codebase I guess
yours_truly joined #ruby
<ryanf> there are a ton of rails helpers that simulate polymorphism based on argument types
<phantasm66> yes... the term polymorphism was also tossed in my direction by my coworker
<Syzygy_> so @variable is rubys private?
<phantasm66> robyurkowski: i guess that answers my question.. basically, stay away from static
<deryl> @var are instance variables.
<deryl> think of it as a variable private to a particular instance of a class instantiation
<Syzygy_> I'll try
<ryanf> Syzygy_: ruby doesn't actually have the concept of a public field or property
<Syzygy_> i just read exactly that on this website ^
<ryanf> attr_accessor and company basically generate getters and setters that simulate public-ness
iamjarvo joined #ruby
<ryanf> but the underlying value is always stored as an instance variable
<ryanf> which isn't accessible from outside the object
<Syzygy_> I think i only need 1 class for this anyway

<any-key> open-uri + a regex and you're set
<blaenk> given strings in the form of "e > t + f", how can I add a '*' after the ' > ' part so that it appears before the 't'?
<any-key> no classes needed
<blaenk> maybe regex or something
kevinbond joined #ruby
rickmasta joined #ruby
skrewler joined #ruby
<blaenk> yeah sub with a regex should work
<any-key> without a doubt
<any-key> "e > t + f".sub(/> /, '> *')
<any-key> wow my ssh connection is slow
<blaenk> yup
<deryl> acting like mine? you type and you see your letters come out like you were on an old teletype?
<any-key> worse than that, sometimes a whole minute
* any-key is a poor college student who cannot afford good internet :(
<deryl> i get that because i'm on a double nat'd wifi link for internet
<any-key> my ISP blocks all websites that contain "bittorrent" in the title
<deryl> and its shared between two properties the landlord owns :/
crankycoder joined #ruby
<any-key> hooray double nat!
skrewler joined #ruby
<deryl> hehe
<deryl> and its really a triple nat, because the link on the dsl router itself is a 10.10 network. nat from my router to the upstream router, that link also being NAT'd, and the link from that router to the dsl is a NAT as well.
<deryl> which really bugs the hell out of me
<any-key> just thinking about it bugs the hell outta me

<blaenk> anyone know of a ruby structure that maps well to a graph? I need to store both node and edge information
<aef> blaenk: there are graph gems, i don't know how good they are though
hurikhan|Work joined #ruby
<aef> blaenk: one i've seen was written with a Java styleguide, which is ugly, but it may still be helpful
<any-key> I've used hashes before, not the most efficient thing ever
<any-key> it kind of helps to have pointers to nodes
<blaenk> aef: thanks. I actually don't need anything over the top, just need to store node and edge info, don't need speed or anything fancy
<blaenk> any-key: might I ask how you did it?
<aef> blaenk: how about this? https://rubygems.org/gems/graph
<any-key> {:node => [names of other nodes]}
<blaenk> what about the edges?
<any-key> implemented PageRank with it :P
<any-key> didn't account for edge weights
<blaenk> oh, np. just I need edge info as well haha
<any-key> throw more hashes at the problem
<any-key> this is ruby, after all
<blaenk> aef: thanks I'm looking around but they all seem overkill or inactive
<RubyPanther> blaenk: it really depends what you're doing, one potential source of examples might http://railroad.rubyforge.org/
<aef> blaenk: graph 2.3 is from october 2011
<aef> blaenk: but i don't know if its overkill
<blaenk> aef: thanks just noticed, was looking at a more outdated fork or something
<aef> blaenk: and its not in Java style
<blaenk> seems like a nice enough gem
<blaenk> thanks, seems fine enough :)

<jankly> What is the name of the !~ operator?
<shevy> jankly that is just a negated regex
<shevy> =~ and !~
<jankly> They do the same thing?
<jankly> Or do they actually have operational differences?
<shevy> jankly they don't do the same thing otherwise you wouldn't have them both in ruby :)
<jankly> shaatar: Obviously. Can you point me in a direction that I might be able to find out more information to differentiate the two operators?
<shevy> "foobar" =~ /oo/ # => 1
<shevy> "foobar" !~ /oo/ # => false
<shevy> "foobar" =~ /bo/ # => nil
<shevy> "foobar" !~ /bo/ # => true
<aef> jankly: i would call them match and negated match operator, but that's not official
<shevy> !~ is just negating the =~
<blaenk> if I have a string "e > *t + f", how can I find out that the character after the * is a 't'?
<jankly> shevy: Thank you.
<blaenk> oh, String#index

<Phrogz> Syzygy_: When in the context of passing a block to a method call, yes.
mxweas_ joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> can i do } or { end?

<Syzygy_> I'm trying to check for all occurances of a string on a an url?
<Syzygy_> url as in the actuall website, not an url itself
<Syzygy_> how would i do that?
<shevy> what do you mean
<shevy> you mean you have two strings?
<shevy> how does the url look, how does the string look
<shevy> url.include? string
skrewler joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> i have a string of an url, and want to check for every occurance of another string on that particular website
manizzle joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> so url.include? string is probably not good enough :/
<shevy> I have trouble understanding "every occurance"
<shevy> your url looks like so? url = "http://mail.google.com/mail/"
<Syzygy_> yeah
<Syzygy_> and the string i'm looking for could be anything
<shevy> give an example!
<shevy> "google" ?
<Syzygy_> lets say on my website http://not-a-number.net/ I'm looking for the word hello
<Syzygy_> or University
mxweas_ joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> or whatever
<shevy> ah... you actually mean on that website
<Syzygy_> that's what i said
<shevy> well an URL is a string after all isn't it :)
<shevy> one way is to store the content of the page in a string
<Syzygy_> well I did actually say "on that particular website"
<Syzygy_> how would I load that?
<shevy> you can use open-uri I think
<Clooth> I use Curb
<Clooth> gem install curb
<Syzygy_> I'm not sure what i can actually use with heroku.com
ksinkar joined #ruby
<shevy> http://not-a-number.net/ is a very weird webpage ;)
<shevy> oh
<Syzygy_> why is that? :>
<shevy> you actually don't mean a word in the source of that page, but a word on the actual website itself? like displayed to the user?
<shevy> dunno, looks korean
wyhaines joined #ruby
<shevy> Syzygy_ wo wohnst denn btw?
<Syzygy_> wien
<shevy> so wie ich. war fr�her h�ufig auf #ruby-de :)

<shevy> I dunno, I thought I saw Hangul chars there
<Syzygy_> ich versuch von sprach spezifischen weg zu bleiben
<shevy> �#
<shevy> hehehe
<shevy> I didn't look at the rest of the page ;P
<Syzygy_> well, � not # number :>
thecreators joined #ruby
<blaenk> any way to see if an array contains all of the elements in another array? I know about include? but that's just for one element
<shevy> ?????
<incluye> a & b == b
<Syzygy_> braenk, you could try it with a foreach
<blaenk> perhaps an array intersection? test if the result of the
<blaenk> there you do :D
<blaenk> thanks incluye that's what I was thinking :)
<aef> blaenk: require 'set'; array.to_set == other_array.to_set
<blaenk> I was actually looking to see if there were sets but I didn't find a Set class in the ruby docs, guess I didn't look hard enough. thanks aef I'll check that out
<Syzygy_> shevy � is a logical not, and # is often interpreted as number
<shevy> aha
<aef> blaenk: you can also check for supersets or subsets with the Set class
<Syzygy_> thus �# is my "logo"
<blaenk> beautiful thanks aef
<blaenk> aef: however, would I be able to do what I said if I do set1 == set2? to repeat, set1 is bigger, and I want to see if set2's elements are in set1 (all of them)
<blaenk> oh yeah subsets :D
<shevy> hmm does that with .to_set really work
banister`sleep joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> I would still just do it with two for loops :/
<aef> blaenk: i think what you want is set1.subset?(set2)
<blaenk> yup found it, thanks again aef
<aef> shevy: yes it does
<aef> blaenk: i think its menat the other way arround. set1.superset?(set2) is true if set2 is the subset
<blaenk> oh okay, thanks :)
<blaenk> yeah it is
kuadrosx joined #ruby
<blaenk> the docs are kind of ambiguous but you're right :)
<shevy> ah
<shevy> that was it indeed, not it works for me as well :)
<shevy> %w(b c).to_set.subset?(%w(a b c).to_set) # => true
<aef> would be cool if sets would support <, >, <= and >=
<aef> but they don't
<shevy> eww
wadedog joined #ruby
<shevy> ah, nevermind. thought for one moment it didn't work what I just wrote... but it works.
<banister`sleep> aef: what would be the semantics of <=> for sets
<shevy> %w( b c hwa ).to_set.subset?(%w( a b c ).to_set) # => false
<banister`sleep> subset/superset?
<aef> banister`sleep: yes
<banister`sleep> ah ok
<aef> would be far more obvious to me as are the superset? and subset? methods
h4mz1d joined #ruby
<aef> and it would be far cooler if Set would be a core type, as often as i need to require it manually
<shevy> yeah
<banister`sleep> aef: then youd need more literal syntax wouldn't u? what would be the syntax?
<aef> banister`sleep: not neccessarily, but that would also be nice
radic joined #ruby
<aef> maybe just <:a, :b, :c>, don't know if that would be parser-compliant
lobo_d_b joined #ruby
lobo_d_b joined #ruby
ronniemlr joined #ruby
radmacd joined #ruby
skrewler joined #ruby
<ryanf> that might be tough since < and > are operators
<Syzygy_> shevy, in my example, is it really necessary to do line.include? string for every line?
<Syzygy_> or could i just say f.include? string for the whole thing?
<ryanf> another % syntax would be more plausible imo
<ryanf> although I guess the others are all for quoting stuff so maybe it's not a good fit
<aef> ryanf: %s{:a, :b, :c}
<aef> or is that reserved already
<aef> ?
<ryanf> that is the same as :":a, :b, :c" I think
<shevy> Syzygy_ hmm
<shevy> Syzygy_ not sure what you mean
durre joined #ruby
<shevy> Syzygy_ it's not asking .include? for every line right now, right?
<Syzygy_> open(url) {|f|
<shevy> yeah but it stores it just in @string
<Syzygy_> oh
<Syzygy_> i guess
<shevy> there are probably more elegant ways, I just wanted to get it done quickly :P
<shevy> but it is asking .include? only once, through the method
<Syzygy_> that is true
<Syzygy_> but couldn't you just write the whole file in the string? why do you need to do it for each line?
<shevy> Syzygy_ there is probably some method that lets you do that
<shevy> I just used the first example from there ;)
<Syzygy_> yeah i'm reading that as well but I'm new to ruby so i don't get it
<banister`sleep> aef: you oculd use ``
<banister`sleep> aef: `:a, :b, :c`
<aef> banister`sleep: that's command execution
<aef> `ls -lag`
<aef> `ls -lah`
<banister`sleep> [29] (pry) main / Hello: 1> `1, 2, 3, 4`
<banister`sleep> => #<Set: {"1, 2, 3, 4"}>
<banister`sleep> aef: you can overide the ` method ;)
<shevy> Syzygy_ well see, basically you just are interested in the HTML code from a webpage right?
<banister`sleep> aef: https://gist.github.com/1372437
<shevy> the source
<shevy> and in the example I gave you just build up a string with that html code, then use .include? on it
<aef> banister`sleep: that's not possible
<shevy> Syzygy_ I'd more write something like that http://pastie.org/2876185
<banister`sleep> aef: i just did it ;)
<banister`sleep> aef: see the gist
<shevy> returns first false, then true in that example, on that webpage
<Syzygy_> I'm not exactly sure what I'm interested in, html should be fine
<aef> i've seen it. it though it was a joke, tried it, and i doesn't work in my 1.9.3
<banister`sleep> aef: i'm running on 1.9.3 and it works fine for me
<shevy> Syzygy_ :)
<shevy> banister`sleep I progressed trying to switch to 1.9.3, slowly step by step!
<Syzygy_> yeah html is fine
<banister`sleep> aef: what's the error you get?
<aef> i tried to paste it into irb, it stayed inside the ` context
<aef> now i'm executing it from a file
<aef> it works partially
<aef> `:a, :b, :c` # => NoMethodError: undefined method `to_set' for [":a, :b, :c"]:Array
<banister`sleep> aef: because you forgot to require 'set'
<aef> well, that's not what i want to get either: #<Set: {":a :b :c"}>
stunna joined #ruby
<aef> banister`sleep: but i'm impressed that you can redefine `
<banister`sleep> aef: i was just suggesting it as a potential literal syntax
<banister`sleep> ryanf: pry 'parser' works better than irb's for def self.`(*args) it seems
<banister`sleep> seems that all the multi-line approaches have their pros and cons
<aef> banister`sleep: i dislike the idea of redefining something already in use for this
<ryanf> wow, can you really do that?
<banister`sleep> ryanf: Yeah
<ryanf> haha yeah irb doesn't like that one bit
<banister`sleep> aef: well you'd only do it inside the scope of your DSL or some such, you wouldn't do it globaly, that's why i defined it as a class method on Hello
philcrissman joined #ruby
<ryanf> that's actually really good to know
<shevy> wait redefine what
<banister`sleep> shevy: the `` "method"
<shevy> oh
<ryanf> sometimes I've like defined _ to execute commands in some special way
<ryanf> but overriding ` would be way nicer
<shevy> That is Kernel#` ?
<ryanf> yeah
<Syzygy_> so stuff like "def set_search_word(i = 'hello')" sets i hello, no matter what arguments are sent to that method?
<ryanf> no
<shevy> Syzygy_ only if you omit arguments to that method
<ryanf> it's just a default
<shevy> yeah
<shevy> def foo(i = 'default value here')
<shevy> foo() # <-- gives i the default value above
<shevy> foo('Syzygy_ is learning ruby') # <-- i will be this now
<Syzygy_> ok
<Syzygy_> i get it
<Syzygy_> thanks
<shevy> Syzygy_ do you have irb? it is very easy to test simple ruby code in it
<shevy> or even better, pry :D
<ryanf> that woke him up
<Syzygy_> I have, but I want to stick to working in files :/
<banisterfiend> :D
<shevy> Syzygy_ I work in files all the time too actually but irb is really really super easy to test simple things quickly
<Syzygy_> I'm uncomfortable working in a console while coding
<shevy> if you understand the code above, though, it's ok
<aef> banisterfiend, ryanf: https://gist.github.com/1372453
<aef> i know its still flawed
<banisterfiend> yeah your arity is messed up
bluOxigen joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> Ruby code usually confuses me :/
<Syzygy_> like what all those + and % and $ do all the time D:
<Syzygy_> but at least I understand your code shevy
imbric joined #ruby
<Syzygy_> except this line: if __FILE__ == $PROGRAM_NAME
<shevy> Syzygy_ that translates to kinda "if this .rb script is called directly, run the following code"
marcuspat joined #ruby
<ryanf> why's the arity messed up banister? `` appears to take one string?
<Syzygy_> ok
<shevy> Syzygy_ you can test a bit ... puts __FILE__ ... puts $PROGRAM_NAME ... http://www.ruby-lang.org/de/documentation/quickstart/4/ <-- in german too, look at the part: "Ansto� f�r das Skript"
<ryanf> usually the idiom is __FILE__ == $0
<ryanf> but it's the same thing
<imbric> hey guys, I've got a kind of an odd question about here-documents. Is it possible to have your identifier appear in the string text on a line by itself?
<ryanf> haha
<ryanf> imbric: can it be indented?
<imbric> no
<Syzygy_> shouldn't be necessary for me to rely on german tutorials ;)
<shevy> hehe
<Syzygy_> but thanks
<imbric> but, do you have a solution that involves indenting, cause that would be interesting as well
Mindscrew left #ruby
<shevy> Syzygy_ well just read it anyway "__FILE__ ist die magische Variable, die den Namen der gerade benutzen Datei als Wert hat, w�hrend $0 der Name der Datei ist, mit dem das Programm gestartet wurde." ... also keep in mind $0 is just the short name for $PROGRAM_NAME (and most people indeed use $0 ... but I kinda like $PROGRAM_NAME more)
<ryanf> well if you don't use - in front of the identifier, it won't close the heredoc unless it is at the beginning of the line
<Syzygy_> ok
<imbric> ah ha.... nice
<imbric> interpolation rocks
incluye joined #ruby
<imbric> thank you ryanf
<ryanf> np
<ryanf> alternately, you could, you know, pick a different identifier

pen_isident joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> and if i want to return another type?
<shevy> def banisterfiend.lives_in_germany?

<Syzygy__> string array for example

<shevy> Syzygy_ I protect you, let's smite them down together!
<Syzygy__> I don't mind, it's not necessary for people to see my code once it works :>
<aef> shevy: you might want to write your variables in camelcase to impress a sith lord
<Syzygy__> camelCase :>
wedtm joined #ruby
<shevy> aef I hate camelcase :( except for class FooBar ... though there my convention often (or always) is to also have the filename foo_bar.rb
<imbric> ryanf: sapced out a sec. well its not really for a practical purpose, I was playing around with her-doc and i wondered if you could do it
<aef> shevy: that's like rails does it. i like that
<shevy> yeah it's an ok one
<shevy> the less my poor brain has to think the better
<ryanf> oh I see
<ryanf> it is kind of interesting that there's a strong convention in ruby against using camelcase file names
<Syzygy__> same here :(
<ryanf> even though classes are always camelcase
<Syzygy__> I guess each of you could write this in minutes
<ryanf> it would make rails code a bit simpler for one thing
<shevy> ryanf I actually use it for one project
<shevy> oddly enough, not for my other projects... so I confuse myself a little
<shevy> class FooBla and file FooBla.rb
<ryanf> yeah
<ryanf> that does seem logical
<shevy> hmmm yeah but many people hate that
<ryanf> and then all you need to translate between scopes and paths is to change :: to /
<ryanf> shevy: yeah, I'm just wondering why that is. it's not like it's inherently any uglier than lowercase
<ryanf> or if it is, the actual class names already suffer from that ugliness
<shevy> no real idea myself. :) I don't really mind either way ... but most of the time for myself, I stick to lowercased .rb file names
<banisterfiend> sorry i gotta interrupt this chat with this just temporarily (sorry) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8QiCqQqxnk&feature=related i wont do it again

<new2net> I'm doing the "tryruby" demo (the 15 minute one).. I'm having trouble with this line of code:
<new2net> hello = 3
<Syzygy__> btw, is there any specific reason you named the Webpage object _ ?
<Syzygy__> what is your problem with that line new2net?
<new2net> well Is it valid?
<Syzygy__> should be
<aef> banisterfiend, ryanf: it seems you can do Set[:a, :b, :c] . cool enough literal in my opinion.
<Syzygy__> you could always try "hello *2" and see what the result is
<Syzygy__> Why do you think it's not valid new2net ?
<shevy> Syzygy__ oh I just like _ ... it is easy to type and has no name
<new2net> Syzygy__, well this interpreter tryruby.org is giving me trouble with it
<shevy> and _._._._ is the coolest thing ever, noone has an idea what will happen :>
<banisterfiend> aef: well you could also probably do Set(:a, :b, :c) too
<shevy> Syzygy__ you should stick to names that are self-explanatory though
<Syzygy__> that's great when showing someone code who has no idea of ruby :/
stephenjudkins joined #ruby
<aef> banisterfiend: yeah, but i hate that for poisoning the global namespace
<shevy> Syzygy__ it's just a name for a variable, you can replace _ with webpage if that makes you feel better, it is still the same thing though ;)
<aef> banisterfiend: if everybody would do that, everything would be full of crap
<Syzygy__> new2net, that interpreter tends to throw a bit of a tantrum when you don't do what it expects right now
<new2net> Syzygy__, basically I wanted to know about ruby, and saw "oh hey try it right now" and was like OK perfect. Unfortunately I didn't get much figured out. Maybe you can answer a few questions for me: is ruby statically typed, does it support OOP, and if it does support OOP can I nest classes?
<shevy> like typically ... webpage = Webpage.new ... or something_fancy = SomethingFancy.new
<aef> banisterfiend: i know, because Pathname supports it too
<Syzygy__> it supports OOP
<Syzygy__> unsure about nesting
<Syzygy__> and i have no idea what statically typed means
<new2net> then it's probably not... String foo = new String("hey"); println(foo * 3); can't multiply a string by integer.
<new2net> but in some languages you can, although it probably should raise an error.
<Syzygy__> you can multiply a string by intager in ruby
notimik joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> "hello"*3 will output hellohellohello
<aef> new2net: it's statically typed because everything has a type, but variables aren't typed, they can reference every object
BiHi joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> (that's actually in that 15 minute tutorial thing btw)
<aef> new2net: you can nest classes, but they are always available for everyone, not private
<new2net> ok.. so I can do this: foo = "hello" foo = (foo * 3).length //15
<aef> new2net: yes you can do that
<aef> new2net: that's because in Ruby you can overload operators
<aef> new2net: every Class can define different logic for almost each operator
<aef> new2net: an operator is defined just like any other method
<new2net> aef, awesome :) thats what I've been looking for. Out of curiosity python is the only other interpreted language that supports nesting classes and it also doesn't allow for private, is there any reason Ruby follows the same pattern?
<aef> new2net: well in Ruby if you type the name of a class, you're actually accessing a constant
<aef> new2net: a constant which refers to a Class object
<aef> new2net: if you just type String
<aef> new2net: you get the Class object that's referred to by the constant String
<aef> new2net: now if there is a class inside String you access it by using String::OtherClass
<aef> new2net: and that means the Class object String has a constant OtherClass which then again refers to another Class object
mxweas_ joined #ruby
<aef> new2net: Class like objects in Ruby just have a namespacing ability thereby
<new2net> does ruby crash if I try to print a variable that doesn't exist?
<aef> new2net: it raises an exception
<aef> new2net: which you can handle if you want, otherwise it will end execution and report it as error
<new2net> aef, right, I don't normally support print with try catch
<new2net> s/support/surround
<aef> new2net: its not try catch, its begin; rescue; end
goodiebo_ joined #ruby
<aef> new2net: try and catch serve a completely different purpose in Ruby
<new2net> aef, never heard of this before, please go on
<Syzygy__> ok shevy, looks like i need to reduce modularity of your code
<Syzygy__> actually i think i'll completely rewrite it :>
<Syzygy__> maybe not even make it OOP
<aef> new2net: well i've seen noone so far using this for something useful
<Syzygy__> since it really only needs to serve that one purpose
<shevy> Syzygy__ that's good, always find your style
<aef> new2net: it seems to be there only to confuse people
<new2net> aef, oh. like a triple variable?
<aef> new2net: i don't know taht
<new2net> variable variable variable, so foo = "bar" ... bar ="baz" ... baz = "confusing" print $$$foo
<Syzygy__> oh I dread the moment I have to deal with regular expressions for this :
<aef> new2net: in Ruby you can throw symbols with throw and catch them with catch
<aef> new2net: it's like a strange goto system
<shevy> Syzygy__ regexes are not beautiful but useful ... @string =~ /#{your_search_term}/
<Syzygy__> I know :/
<aef> new2net: the thing is, as a beginner, you should only care about raise and rescue
<Syzygy__> it's not so much about my search term, but the line in which my search type is found
<new2net> aef, spaghetti code
<aef> new2net: that's for raising exceptions, and handling them
<new2net> aef, ok. and "Ruby on Rails" is a web application framework, correct?
<aef> new2net: you got that right

<blaenk> is there a quick way to get the character that follows another in a string? 'afg42' get '2' given input '4'?
<blaenk> or should I use a combination of string index + 1
<ryanf> that is probably the best solution, there are others using regex though
<ryanf> 'afg42'[/4(.)/, 1]
<blaenk> thanks ryanf
<new2net> What does it look like when I invoke a method with more than 1 argument?
<aef> blaenk: or in 1.9 and above: "abc".match(/b(?<next>.)/)[:next]
<blaenk> in which case I ask, is there a way to write dynamic regex? in other words, the 4 in that regex would be dynamic, an input
<ryanf> or 'afg42' =~ /4(.)/; $1
<ryanf> or 'afg42' =~ /(?<=4)./; $&
<ryanf> blaenk: you can interpolate into a regex
<blaenk> ah okay thanks :)_
<ryanf> using #{}
a_a_g joined #ruby
<blaenk> thanks ryanf and aef
<ryanf> it is probably better to just use index though instead of building a regex every time
<blaenk> 'afg42'['afg42'.index('4') + 1]?
<ryanf> haha that isn't very attractive is it
<ryanf> I assume afg42 will be a variable though?
<blaenk> well if it works :) that's what I was using but I wanted to see if there was a better way
milkpost_ joined #ruby

<Syzygy__> threadList << DEFAULT_URL + /res\/[0-9]+/
<Syzygy__> so will this add the first occurance of res/117116756 in the current line?
<ryanf> no
<ryanf> do you know perl by any chance?
<Syzygy__> it has been so long ago that I might just as well answer no
<ryanf> ahh
<ryanf> I was wondering since that seems like the kind of thing perl would let you do
<ryanf> ruby doesn't have the same concept that perl does of like an implicit current line
<ryanf> so if you want to do something with a string, you need to explicitly do it
<Syzygy__> that means?
<ryanf> in this case you could do like str.match(/res\/[0-9]+/)[0]
<Syzygy__> line =~ /regexp/ ?
<ryanf> that's one way yeah
<ryanf> the point is, /res\/[0-9]+/ by itself is just a regexp and ruby won't do anything fancy with it automatically like perl does
<Syzygy__> what does the zero at the end do?
sqbell joined #ruby
<ryanf> that's the same as an index in an array. it just means it gets the whole match.
<ryanf> actually a nicer way would be
<ryanf> str[/res\/[0-9]+/]
<ryanf> or str[/res\/\d+/]
<blaenk> how can I do a 'do until' loop, begin ... end until condition?

<Syzygy__> blaenk, while condition should work
<Syzygy__> while condition do end
<Syzygy__> or while condition { }
<new2net> aef, you said a class can define logic for an operator. Can you show me an example of the IFF logical operator? in other words A IFF B, A is true if and only if B is true
xpot joined #ruby
<blaenk> thanks Syzygy__
<Syzygy__> no problem
<aef> new2net: you can only redefine existing operators. IFF is not a Ruby operator
<aef> new2net: but you could for example use * as your IFF operator
<Syzygy__> shevy what does that pp library do?
<new2net> So A*B B = false, now A should be false too
<blaenk> Syzygy__: prolly prettyprint
<aef> new2net: well
<aef> new2net: your example is a bit strange
<aef> new2net: because in Ruby everything that is not false or nil, is true
<shevy> Syzygy__ pp for "pretty print", if you have an array, and you do pp array, it will be nicely indented and structured for you (output)
<aef> new2net: therefore 0 is true
<aef> new2net: let me show you another example
<Syzygy__> oh
<Syzygy__> I think all that's wrong with my code is the if now
<shevy> Syzygy__ you can also use p array though that uses normal .inspect I think
<new2net> implementing IFF would be tricky :) at least in the languages that I know. Assigning a primitive variable a value does not typically manipulate another primitive variable.

<Syzygy__> who can blame you, and that's not even the same regex syntax I'm used to
<Syzygy__> exactly
[1]maarten joined #ruby
<workmad3> right... for starters, %r{res/\d+} for the regex ;)
<Syzygy__> you sure? i read the in ruby regex starts with / and ends with /
<Syzygy__> so /regex/
<workmad3> it can also use %r{}
<workmad3> or %R{}
<workmad3> and when you do, you don't need to escape /
<workmad3> makes it pretty nice for matching parts of URLs :)
<Syzygy__> the way i learned regex it would be ^res/[0-9]* or something like that anyway :/
<Syzygy__> ah i get it
<workmad3> that wouldn't do what you want... that would match res at the start of the line, and then 0 or more numbers 0-9
<Syzygy__> the \d does what though? all decimal numbers?
<workmad3> yeah
zomgbie joined #ruby
<shevy> :)
<Syzygy__> and the +? 1 or more?
<shevy> you can see that workmad3 knows his things
<workmad3> Syzygy__: yup ;)
<Syzygy__> more than me in any case
<shevy> yeah
<shevy> I couldn't have said to use %r{} myself without looking it up
<Syzygy__> now all i need is a way to add that matched regex to the string
<workmad3> oh yeah, capturing... use %r{(res/\d+)} to make sure it's captured
<aef> new2net: still there?
<new2net> aef, yes. I waited
<workmad3> then you can do 'string.match(regex); thread_list << default_url + $1
<aef> new2net: about type hinting
<aef> new2net: Ruby does not support this natively
geekfactor joined #ruby
<aef> new2net: and that's because an ideology named Duck Typing
ixx joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> i was hoping for something that would work like threadList << defaultURL + %r{{res/\d+}}
<Syzygy__> D:
<aef> new2net: an often repeated sentence about this is "if it walks like a duck, it is a duck"
<workmad3> Syzygy__: I suspect there is a one-liner... but my regex-fu isn't working well enough. I only woke up 30 mins ago :P
<workmad3> Syzygy__: so I was concentrating on getting you something that worked, rather than worked and was 1 line ;)
<aef> new2net: which means, that most of the time, you don't want to decide what an object in Ruby is by checking its class
<aef> new2net: but instead you want only to check if it responds to the methods you need to call on it
<new2net> aef, I see... so instead of raising the exception, it raises the exception when it turns out that the method invoked doesn't exist?
<aef> new2net: exactly
<new2net> is other words, is not a Duck
<Syzygy__> line.match( %r{{res/\d+}}) threadList << defaultUrl + $1
<Syzygy__> so this?
<aef> new2net: type hinting or static typing make software very restricted
<workmad3> Syzygy__: as long as you have them on separate lines, yeah
<aef> new2net: with duck typing you can always use something else as intended
<aef> new2net: an in most of the times it simply works
<workmad3> new2net: ruby is like interface oriented programming on steroids ;)
<aef> new2net: that's another thin
<shevy> Syzygy__ but you must not forget that $1 can be nil if the regex can not find a match
<aef> new2net: in Ruby there is no formal construct of an Interface
<shevy> I'd really use two lines Syzygy__ :P
<workmad3> shevy: good point... that should be $1.to_s
<shevy> or that yeah
<aef> new2net: even if I think that would help sometimes
<aef> new2net: but you can build a thing like that if you want
<workmad3> or maybe thread_list << default_url + $1 if line =~ %r{(res/\d+)}
<workmad3> woo, oneliner :)
<aef> new2net: there is a method #respond_to?(method) which almost every object in Ruby supports
<Syzygy__> i also added the .to_s
<workmad3> aef: I'm not sure about a formal construct of an Interface... but it would be very nice to be able to formally declare what methods you need implemented for a mixin to work
<Syzygy__> and i think i'll leave it at that
<aef> new2net: through which you can check before calling the actual method, if it exists
<aef> workmad3: yeah, that's what I would like too
<workmad3> Syzygy__: you have an 'if if'
<Syzygy__> oh, thanks
Mchl joined #ruby
<workmad3> Syzygy__: which by itself isn't a syntax error, but the first one isn't closed, so when it reaches the end of the {} block, it knows you've forgotten to close it :)
<Syzygy__> so i think my crawler is mostly ready :D
<workmad3> aef: but then I think about how nightmarish such a thing would be to implement if you wanted it checked... what happens if the mixin interface is supported via method_missing overloads, for example?
<Syzygy__> now i need to implement it at my site somehow
<new2net> aef, interesting. How old is ruby? I notice people 2 or 3 times my_age (for lack of better words) use it. But have never met anyone my age who uses it, or mention it really.
<aef> workmad3: I consider it good style to implement custom respond_to? if you use method_missing
<workmad3> new2net: mid-90s I think

<aef> actually i think the publicity of Rails made Ruby known, at least that's why everyone I know came to Ruby
<aef> only to find out that most of the cool things in Rails are provided by Ruby
Morkel joined #ruby
<new2net> The first time I heard about ruby was when I found a server w/ a cname rails when scanning a network. Obviously, to this channel anyways, it had a web server running. It was some wiki about ruby on rails.
<Syzygy__> so workmad3, shevy, you've seen my code... is it slow or is that just my internet connection right now?
<shevy> Syzygy__ open-uri isn't usually the fastest thing for me
tatsuya_o joined #ruby
<shevy> but perhaps define "slow" first
<shevy> 10 seconds 100 seconds 5555 minutes
<Syzygy__> takes about a minute to run
codespectator joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> also it doesn't add the regex

jbpros joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> what exactly does $1 do btw?
<aef> Syzygy__: gives you the first submatcher result from the last RegExp matching
mengu joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> ah ok
<shevy> hmm a minute to run sounds insane, no idea why it takes so long for you. ah .. but perhaps you check with your regex on every line ...
<shevy> can you upload your current code on pastie?
<Syzygy__> one second

pi3r joined #ruby
ephemerian joined #ruby
<Syzygy__> I included a break after line 14 now
burgestrand joined #ruby
<shevy> well ok
<shevy> that looks a bit inefficient
<new2net> aef, Thanks for taking the time to inform me. Does ruby have a GTK?
<shevy> the regex engine is not very light, so you should try to avoid it when you can Syzygy__
<shevy> if line =~ /#{"AGDG"}|#{"vidyadev"}/
<shevy> I am not sure what that is
<shevy> can't you use this instead?
<aef> new2net: there are bindings, but for all I know they are quite rough
<shevy> if line =~ /AGDG|vidyadev/
<shevy> Syzygy__ also, you could check with a .include? 'AGDG' first, before calling the regex
<Syzygy__> workmad3 told me to use that, but you're probably right
iocor joined #ruby
<shevy> where did he do that
<aef> new2net: most people I know who develop GUI apps with Ruby do it using Java Swing or SWT through JRuby
<aef> new2net: but there are bindings for GTK
<Syzygy__> also i guess checking AGDG and vidyadev with two includes would be even better, right?
<shevy> Syzygy__ I don't think he wrote a line like: if line =~ /#{"AGDG"}|#{"vidyadev"}/
<Syzygy__> yeah, ok i might have made a mistake when changing the code he suggested
<shevy> you could always define a new method
<shevy> but yeah
<shevy> you don't need the first regex...
<Syzygy__> workmad3> Syzygy__: if line =~ /#{string1}|#{string2}/
<Syzygy__> is what was suggested
<shevy> if line.include?("AGDG") or line.include?("vidyadev")
<Syzygy__> can i just type or?
<shevy> Yeah Syzygy__ but that was because he thought you had two variables
<shevy> called string1 = "foo" and string2 = "bar"
<aef> new2net: if you want to learn Ruby I recommend the famous pickaxe book to you: Programming Ruby 1.9
<shevy> the #{} is doing interpolation
<shevy> Syzygy__ or should work I think ... but test it
<new2net> aef, My parents said they will disown me if I use PHP again.
<aef> new2net: your parents are wise people

<banisterfiend> $1 and $2 etc are nice

<aef> banisterfiend: if MatchData wouldn't be as blocky to use, I would clearly prefer it, but it is quite blocky
<banisterfiend> aef what does blocky mean
<shevy> aef well problem is ... require 'English' is one extra line in a typical .rb file
<aef> banisterfiend: just doens't feel right
<shevy> if one wouldn't have to require it it would be better :\
<banisterfiend> aef: you're talking about $1 and $2 ?
<aef> banisterfiend: for example i really dislike it that [0] is the original string
danielpunt joined #ruby
<aef> banisterfiend: i'm talking about MatchData being not as cool as it could be
<banisterfiend> ok

sandstrom joined #ruby
sandstrom joined #ruby
<ryanf> yeah I actually like the perlish regex interface a lot better than the ruby ones
<ryanf> also $` and $' are really handy
<aef> ryanf, banisterfiend: since 1.9 you can name the submatchers with (?<somename>) and select them on the MatchData object like result[:somename] which I think is great. the only downpoint is that the regexes tend to become even more horrible to read by doing this
<ryanf> yeah I don't think I would ever do that unless I were matching multiple groups with the same regex
<ryanf> and even then it would probably have to be a pretty complicated one
<banisterfiend> ryanf: hey do u know much about macosx / google chrome? when i start google chrome it complains it wasn't closed properly the last time and offers to restore tabs, however after it displays that dialog it then crashes
<banisterfiend> and it always crashes, even after i reset/reboot my system
<banisterfiend> anyway to 'clear' google chrome out or something so it can work again and doesnt try to restore old tabs?
flippingbits joined #ruby
<banisterfiend> or anyone?
<KL-7> Regarding named groups in 1.9 if you match a string with (?<somename>) ruby will set matched string to a variable with same name that is 'somename' in that case. Not sure whether it's good or bad as it seems to overwrite existing variables in the current scope.
hemanth joined #ruby

<aef> banisterfiend: isn't there some kind of application data folder in MacOS? just guessing
<Syzygy__> that's what i thought, but the string stays empty
<KL-7> aef, I agree, it can lead to some awful situations
<Syzygy__> and i think it's really just that my connection is so slow because I'm downloading stuff
<KL-7> btw, can someone point me to the full list of this dollar sign variables? It's always so difficult to google them
<Syzygy__> is there a way to double break?
<banisterfiend> Syzygy__: use throw/catch
<banisterfiend> or better still design your program in such a way that you dont have to
<aef> KL-7: http://phrogz.net/programmingruby/lib_standard.html search for library English. don't know if thats complete
<Syzygy__> but i need two whiles :/
<aef> Syzygy__: isn't it possible to just call break 2 times?
<aef> Syzygy__: if not, try "break && break"
<Syzygy__> not in any meaningfull way because the first break would break before the second break would be accessed
adambeynon joined #ruby
<KL-7> aef, thanks
<Syzygy__> break && break is a "void value expression" and thus not valid

<jensn> Sure, what is the problem?
<soulnafein> there's no way out of encoding hell
<dgaffney> *stays in encoding hell*
<soulnafein> :-)
<dgaffney> so, i have a mysql database formatted in latin1, and the chinese in there looks fabulous. Arabic script screws up the printing, but its fine. everything looks great, and the database character set is latin1.
<dgaffney> somewhere between that beautiful printout and data mapper's printout of the same row, horrible, awful things happen.
Clooth joined #ruby
<dgaffney> i'm using 1.9.2 and have tried all the iconv stuff, setting external default/internal default etc…. not sure what the "way" is here. I'm using default settings on my mysql instance - i'm sure someone has gotten caught on this the same way.
<zomgbie> what could be the reason that the render method (via Mail) renders my html template but just without the instance variable @salutation - i'm using sinatra/padrino but think this might be a more general ruby question http://pastie.org/2877512

<linduxed> hey guys, i was thinking of installing ruby on my debian server, but i realized that there are like three versions avaliable, along with like three different packages for each one (-dev, -full, and so on)
sepp2k joined #ruby
<linduxed> i've also read about this "RVM" thing, but it seems to handle all versions, not sure if i want that
<mog-> linduxed, you probably want rvm if you're deploying your own applications
josephwilk joined #ruby
<Tasser> linduxed, ruby-dev is development headers (learn some debian :-P), that's needed if you want to compile something against ruby, like most *sql gems. ruby-full installs everything and ruby is just the interpreter (without gems or irb)
iocor joined #ruby
<kaspernj> linduxed, you want to use RVM if you wish to develop gems, test against various interpreters (like JRuby, Rubinius, Ruby 1.8, Ruby 1.9 etc.). Also "bundler" and "jeweler" doesnt work with old Gem-installations (like the ones packaged in older versions of Ubuntu).
<kaspernj> linduxed, RVM is a really nice thing. It can take a bit of time to understand and set up, but it is very much worth it in the long run :-)

<apeiros_> paulian: ruby on rails is #rubyonrails. the backtrace should be in your log.
ik_5 left #ruby
<paulian> thanks, but we are not using rails, is a command line script ...
<paulian> We tried using rdebug but we get a segfault after running "cont"
<deryl> try ruby -d -W2
<deryl> -d will turn on the debugging
<deryl> -W2 will crank out the max amount of warning information
<kaspernj> paulian, try searching the source-code for e.message or e.inspect with a tool like Reggexer... That is useually used to write out error messages. Or "catch" which is used for error handling. It sounds like your app have caught the error and only printed the error message.
<deryl> wish ruby supported --trace directly

<paulian> deryl, kaspernj : thanks very much, we will try that
<apeiros_> paulian: d'oh, sorry, I somehow read "we're debugging a rails application". no idea why :-S
<kaspernj> paulian, maybe you should only search for ".message" or ".inspect" since the e-variable could be called something different.
<apeiros_> I'd search for the message printed
<apeiros_> it's a known

<kaspernj> paulian, I assume you know which file started the app? Try putting "begin" on the top, and then "catch Exception => e; puts e.inspect; puts e.backtrace". No matter if there is an exit or interrupt this should catch it and tell you where it is (unless it comes from a thread).
<apeiros_> paulian: it's hard to give a generic approach for such a problem
<kaspernj> paulian, and "; end"
caveat- joined #ruby
<kaspernj> so the end should be: "catch Exception => e; STDOUT.puts e.inspect; STDOUT.puts e.backtrace; end"
<kaspernj> Then even if the app has hacked stdout, it should still get printed to your terminal.

<LiquidInsect> doesn't matter, if there isn't a way to do it it just means we're doing it wrong in general which was my hunch to begin with
<Kiten> eval is never the right thing to use anyway to many ways to abuse it

<blueadept> quick question, if i have two arrays of utc formatted dates, what's the best way to compare both of them and only output those dates which are not in both arrays?
<LiquidInsect> I don't want to use send. I want to do ANYTHING other than eval.

<LiquidInsect> Neither am I. I didn't write this.
<Kiten> used for an interpreter ?
<Kiten> other than that to me it seems pointless
<shevy> what are those evals doing right now?
<Kiten> blueadept: google rdoc: Time
<Kiten> blueadept: there is a boat load of info on the Time class there
<Tasser> blueadept, rubydoc.info => stdlib
<LiquidInsect> they're using a list of symbols. Iterating on that list. Each symbol is evaled as (something like) eval("#{sym.to_s}_paid_to_date = some_other_object.inject({|sum,i| i.price})"
<LiquidInsect> more or less.

<aef> can anyone imagine a way how i could test if a warning was being written which is send with the C function rb_warn ?
<aef> that is, without having access to the STDERR stream
<deryl> I don't like how convoluted they've made the classes, but thats not the same thing as not liking classes
<Kiten> aef how the eff would you not have access to STDERR
<deryl> sort of like MS's STL
<samuelkadolph> aef: No, there is no warn hook. The best you can do is patch ruby's warn
<aef> Kiten: well, STDERR is not opened for reading
<Kiten> microjunks acid induced VS "secure" features suck
<Kiten> aef are you on windows or nix ?
<dlitvak> aef: is there no way you can launch the script doing $2 > $1??
<Kiten> if your on nix STDERR is always open
<samuelkadolph> You could reopen $stderr to a pipe then read from it
<aef> Kiten: i'm on Linux, but the spec must work on Windows too
<Kiten> the kernel prints junk to it
<dlitvak> aef: that would redirect stderr to stdout
<Kiten> exception anyone
<Kiten> just catch exceptions an log it to a file
<dlitvak> aef: using puts err??
<aef> dlitvak: I need to test it programmatically, it's a unit test
<dlitvak> aef: i understand that... so... then why are you printing to a file, stderr, whatever?
<dlitvak> just assert the exception
<aef> dlitvak: i could set $STDERR to a StrinIO object maybe
<aef> dlitvak: maybe that works, i'll try that
imsplitbit joined #ruby
<samuelkadolph> No it won't
<dlitvak> aef: great!... but... still... why would you want that?
pschmitz_ joined #ruby

<aef> dlitvak: i think rubyspec's mspec has a matcher for that
lobo_d_b joined #ruby
lobo_d_b joined #ruby
<Kiten> then you can use STDERR
<aef> dlitvak: sorry, i think i've got my solution
headius joined #ruby
<Kiten> although i'm pretty sure STDERR can be used on windwoes
<samuelkadolph> r,w = IO.pipe; $stderr.reopen(w); Time.now.succ; r.gets # => "(irb):4: warning: Time#succ is obsolete; use time + 1\n"
<Kiten> if not some wizardry can over come it
<dlitvak> aef: never used mspec, just rspec and test/unit... but... why would you want to redirect stderr?
<aef> dlitvak: i don't want that. and i won't do that
<aef> dlitvak: i've found a way now, there's a built in matcher
<dlitvak> aef: oh... great!
<aef> dlitvak: thanks for your ideas though
<samuelkadolph> My example works on windows
<dlitvak> aef: no problem!
<aef> Kiten: problem's solved, thank you too

<sodani> I thought that it was a UTF-8 character but I guess I'm wrong
<dlitvak> sodani: if the symbol is as you said latin-1... you should try... latin-1

<shevy> is this a good $LANG? en_US.utf8
<samuelkadolph> Probably
<samuelkadolph> Mine is en_CA.UTF-8
<shevy> hmm... does it have to be upcased and include a - ?
<sodani> how do you view the $LANG variable?
<shevy> echo $LANG
<samuelkadolph> Or ENV["LANG"] in ruby
<shevy> I'll upcase it and add a -
<shevy> :)
<sodani> hmm, I'm getting => nil
awesomenickname joined #ruby
<shevy> then you probably default to C or whatever the default is
<samuelkadolph> Then it defaults for ASCII
milkpost joined #ruby

<iboB> so it works for quaternion
<any-key> iboB: pastebin, please

<any-key> def +(other) @coord.zip(other).map {|i| i.inject(:+) }; end
<any-key> but that doesn't duplicate what you're doing
<any-key> iboB: I haven't tested this, but calling self is calling whatever in that class is...so you're returning a whatever subclass
<iboB> there was a reason for me to use a mixin
<iboB> but i've forgotten what it is
<iboB> i'm testing it with extending the vector now
<iboB> and honestly i don't see what it is :|
<iboB> so... yeah... thanks :)

<any-key> no problem
<any-key> I was vauge :P
<iboB> and another question, i saw how to use coerce to make 7*vec work, but the thing is that i don't want 7/vec to work :)
<iboB> is there a way to "coerce" only *
<thomasfedb> iboB, generally you don't coerce opperators

<iboB> well yeah.. wrong wording, but is there a way to make 7*x work but 7/x not

<thomasfedb> iboB, yes, but you'd have to monkeypatch Fixnum, or Numeric, or Integer
<iboB> ah well that's not acceptable because i need it for integers, floats, doubles and all scalar types that one can think of
<iboB> so ok... i guess i'll make due without 7*x
<RubyPanther> You get BIOS source code _and_ help in the first time, what more could you want?
<thomasfedb> iboB, you could just do x*7
<any-key> what the fuck is going on when I do reduce(:+)
<any-key> I know it's a 1.9 thing but what is it called?
<any-key> I feel like I'm missing out on something
<thomasfedb> any-key, it will sum the array/enumerable
<thomasfedb> any-key, .reduce is the same as .inject
<any-key> thomasfedb: I'm aware, but the syntax will confuse me
<any-key> *is confusing
<thomasfedb> any-key, ok
<any-key> thomasfedb: nonono the :+ part, I understand the functional stuff
<thomasfedb> any-key, .reduce(:+) is equivalent to .reduce {|a,b| a + b }
<RubyPanther> iboB: The idea with coerce is to covert to a common class that understands both sides and can do the right thing, so you just make a subclass Foo where foo * foo and foo / foo does what you want, and have the coerce convert both sides to foo
<thomasfedb> any-key, what happens is inside reduce it does (:+).to_proc
<any-key> thomasfedb: I understand
<thomasfedb> any-key, good.
<any-key> oooh
<any-key> wow okay that makes sense
<any-key> thanks
<iboB> RubyPanther the thing is that the very idea of 7/x is invalid
<iboB> i need an exception on 7/x
<thomasfedb> any-key, no worries
mxweas_ joined #ruby
<RubyPanther> iboB: it is normal when writing a numeric subclass to throw an exception on some things, or return a NaN, or whatever.
Jckf left #ruby
<iboB> er... how can i use coerce, since 7*x should be a valid operation, whereas 7/x should not (not that both x*7 and x/7 are valid)
