How do ASP Response.Write in RoR?


#1

With Microsnot technology you an do this:

<% Response.Write “Hello, World” %>

How do you output text to the browser with Ruby?

Fred…
Maybe I am missing something here but why would you surround a straight
string in <%=""%>. Why not just put hello world?

one quick note… <%= %> is what you use to executed embedded ruby
code and then display the output in your view. <% %> (no equals
sign) is what you use to just execute ruby code without displaying the
output in your view. so you could do something like:

<% 3.times do %>
Hello <%= currentuser.name %>
<% end %>


#6

the <%= %> notation is what you use in a view to execute embedded
ruby code. if you literally want to just print “hello world” in your
view, then you wouldn’t need the <%= %>. however, say you want to
say “hello username” where username is the current user’s name, then
your view would look something like:

hello <%= currentuser.name %>

You wouldn’t normally, just as you wouldn’t actually put <%
Response.Write “Hello, World” %> either. It was an example.
