Hi, following example is originally from the book “Learning Perl”. I
would like to know Ruby version of this.
I can split following record at “:” in Perl,
fred flintstone:2168:301 Cobblestone Way:555-1212:555-2121:3
and assign items to variables as below:
my($name, $card_num, $addr, $home, $work, $count) = split /
And in Ruby, I can do this:
(name, card_num, addr, home, work, count) = string.split(":")
Then, I can use any variable I want. How about if I am only interested
in getting the items 1 and 5 (card_num and count) in Ruby.
In Perl, I can pull out only item 1 and 5 ($card_num and $count) as
($card_num, $count) = (split /:/)[1, 5]
I am wondering, if I can do the same thing in Ruby. Thank you very much.
