ERB: Format for trim_mode string


#1

In the documentation for ERB.new
(http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/erb/rdoc/classes/ERB.html#M000649)
it says:

"If trim_mode is passed a String containing one or more of the
following modifiers, ERB will adjust its code generation as listed:

%  enables Ruby code processing for lines beginning with %
<> omit newline for lines starting with <% and ending in %>
>  omit newline for lines ending in %>"

What is the format for this trim_mode string? I specifically want to
use the % and <> modes. I tried passing through “%<>” but it doesn’t
seem to be working.

maybe your <% ruby code %> must start at the beginning of the line,there
mustn’t be no more white space.
