Private method `split' called for


I’m trying to split a string up as follows:

@ruby = “I like carrots”
=> “I like carrots”

@type = @ruby.split[2][0,@ruby.split[2].length-1]
=> “carrot”

which works fine in the console…but when I try to run it on my site, I
get the error:

private method `split’ called for #List:0xb681084c

What could be the problem?



shit sorry, I’m a dooshbag, the problem isn’t a problem, the problem is
my eye for detail. @ruby wasn’t assigned to a string in my code.
