Sample text

P> There’s a link_to() call within an ERB <%=…%> sequence. This creates a link to a URL that will invoke the goodbye() action. The first parameter in the call to link_to() is the text to be displayed in the hyperlink, and the next parameter tells Rails to generate the link to the goodbye() action. Let’s stop for a minute to consider how we generated the link. We wrote this: link_to "Goodbye", say_goodbye_path First, link_to() is a method call. ) If you come from a language such as Java, you might be surprised that Ruby doesn’t insist on parentheses around method parameters.

When an object receives a message, it looks into its own class for a corresponding method. add_line_item(next_purchase) submit_tag "Add to Cart" Parentheses are generally optional in method calls. In Rails applications, you’ll find that most method calls involved in larger expressions will have parentheses, while those that look more like commands or declarations tend not to have them. Methods have names, as do many other constructs in Ruby. Names in Ruby have special rules, rules that you may not have seen if you come to Ruby from another language.

Ruby also provides means for defining collections of arbitrary objects via arrays and hashes. Arrays and Hashes Ruby’s arrays and hashes are indexed collections. Both store collections of objects, accessible using a key. With arrays, the key is an integer, whereas hashes support any object as a key. Both arrays and hashes grow as needed to hold new elements. It’s more efficient to access array elements, but hashes provide more flexibility. Any particular array or hash can hold objects of differing types; you can have an array containing an integer, a string, and a floating-point number, for example.
