Include the English library file in a Ruby script, and you can reference the global variables such as $_ using less cryptic names, listed below.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
$ bundle install
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install English
$\ = ' -- ' "waterbuffalo" =~ /buff/ print $', $$, "\n"
require "English" $OUTPUT_FIELD_SEPARATOR = ' -- ' "waterbuffalo" =~ /buff/ print $POSTMATCH, $PID, "\n"
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake test to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
