Newbie question - HelloWorld

When I created a rails project as ‘HelloWorld’ and a controller as
‘HelloWorld’, ruby created control called hello_world instead of
HelloWorld. Why is that? Why is it not using the name I am providing
to create?
Thanks.

I think that’s just a Rails standard…I could be wrong though.

What is the standard? Is there a definition somewhere how the names
change?

It’s all done according to Ruby conventions/traditions. If you
generate a controller called HelloWorld, you’ll get a file called
hello_world_controller.rb, with a class called HelloWorldController
defined inside it. That’s in keeping with Ruby file-naming and
class-naming conventions.

Similar things will happen with models: if you generate a Thing model,
you’ll get things.rb with class Thing inside it.

The name of controller is hello_world instead of helloworld.
Thanks.

Is the controller named hello_world or just the file? My guess is that
on
the filesystem you have a file called hello_world_controller.rb, but if
you
look inside at the first line where it defines the class, it is probably
called HelloWorld.
