Re: Trouble parsing against a hash

Right. But never use:

“#{var}”

I thought #{var} was used within quotes to get the value as otherwise
you just get var…

var = “Hello Ruby T. World”
“I just wanted to say #{var}” -> I just wanted to say Hello Ruby T.
World
“I just wanted to say var” -> I just wanted to say var

or am I missing the point?

To me it’s easier to do the above and much cleaner than the following:

print "I just wanted to say " + var + “, love the slippers!”

Or am I just showing my ant roots again…? ${var}

Correct.

var = “Hello Ruby T. World”
“I just wanted to say #{var}” -> I just wanted to say Hello Ruby
Talk World
“I just wanted to say var” -> I just wanted to say var

Nope you have it.

What I meant to say in my other message was if it is the only thing
in the String, it’s pointless.
