Using ROR With Latest Tips and Techniques

Jul 1, 2008
Ruby expressions would be shocking for the uninitiated or those who are shifting form other programming languages. If you have experience with Perl or Python, then you're in luck for they won't send you packing up and running in fear. The term "regular expression" is used to have a program check if it looks like something else in terms of similar characters or spacing, length or a myriad of other things that you may think of. The table form summarizes all the Ruby expressions and elements. Regular expressions are used for matching certain patterns such that if you'd want to check for a digit you use the \d expression or to match a space character, you use the \s expression to match a space character.

The caret "^" and the "&" operators are used for matching the beginning of a string, and also for the end of a string shown below:

matching =/[a-e]$/

The script would look for similar letters between "a" and "e" respectively including the end of the string. To search for a letter inside a string:

[A-Z] all uppercase letters
[a-z] all lowercase letters
[0-9] all digits(numbers)

To restrict the range, say to look for only the letters between "a" and "e", you write it as [a-e] combined with the caret operator shown below:

[^A-Z] all other characters except uppercase letters
[^a-z] all other characters except lowercase letters
[^A-Za-z] no letters, whether upper or lower case

Because of its success, popularity and functionality, Ruby on Rails performs with an extensive variety of web servers and databases.

Meanwhile, for database, the following have been suggested to be utilized: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 and a lot more of servers that Ruby on Rails support and work well with. There is no limitation or strictly recommended on which operating system to use, but the best to make use of is a 'nix-based one for deployment.
