Can I split the array from text?

If I have an array like this

[“Member”, “Friends”, “Hello”, “Components”, “Family”, “Lastname”]

And I need to split this array from “Components” and get 2 arrays which
are

[“Member”, “Friends”, “Hello”]

and

[“Family”, “Lastname”]

Can I do that and how?

Maybe you can refer to Enumerable#slice_before

Here’s a sample code:

a = [“Member”,“Friends”,“Hello”,“Components”,“Family”,“Lastname”]
b = a.slice_before {|elem| elem == “Components” }.to_a
p b[0] #=> [“Member”, “Friends”, “Hello”]
p b[1] #=> [“Components”, “Family”, “Lastname”]

Here’s a tricky one:)

a = [“Member”,“Friends”,“Hello”,“Components”,“Family”,“Lastname”]
b = a.partition {|elem| true unless elem==“Components”…false }
p b

[[“Member”,“Friends”,“Hello”], [“Components”,“Family”,“Lastname”]]

How about this?

module Enumerable

def split(sep = nil)
res = Array.new
part = Array.new

self.each do |el|
  if block_given? ? yield(el) : el === sep then
    res.push(part)
    part = Array.new
  else
    part.push(el)
  end
end

res.push(part)

res

end

end

ruby-1.9.2-p180 :017 > ar.split do |el| el[-1] == “s” end
=> [[“Member”], [“Hello”], [“Family”, “Lastname”]]

I think this is the simplest way:

a = [“Member”, “Friends”, “Hello”, “Components”, “Family”, “Lastname”]
i = a.index(“Components”)
p a[0…i]
p a[i+1…-1]
