Nuby: %w to understand quotes


#1

Hi All,

irb(main):007:0> %w{this is a test}
=> [“this”, “is”, “a”, “test”]

fine.

irb(main):008:0> %w{“this is” “a test”}
=> ["“this”, “is”", ““a”, “test””]

i want

[“this is”,“a test”]

Is there a ruby notation like %w that understand quotes?

thank you and kind regards -botp

Try this:

%w{this\ is a\ test}

%w understands backslash escape

|irb(main):001:0> %w{this\ is a\ test}
|=> [“this is”,“a test”]
