Sample text

Functions do three things: 1. They name pieces of code the way variables name strings and numbers. 2. They take arguments the way your scripts take ARGV. 3. Using #1 and #2 they let you make your own “mini scripts” or “tiny commands”. You can create a function (also called “methods”) by using the word def in Ruby. I’m going to have you make four different functions that work like your scripts, and then show you how each one is related. ") puts_none() Let’s break down the first function, puts_two which is the most similar to what you already know from making scripts: 1.

Gets instead of plain ‘ol gets. That is because if there is stuff in ARGV, the default gets method tries to treat the first one as a file and read from that. gets explicitly. What You Should See When you run this, remember that you have to give the script your name for the ARGV arguments. rb script. I'd like to ask you a few questions. Do you like me Zed? > Yes Where do you live Zed? > America What kind of computer do you have? 0 Alright, so you said Yes about liking me. You live in America. Not sure where that is.

Here’s the list of commands I want you to remember: • close – Closes the file. Like File->Save.. in your editor. • read – Reads the contents of the file, you can assign the result to a variable. • readline – Reads just one line of a text file. • truncate – Empties the file, watch out if you care about the file. • write(stuff) – Writes stuff to the file. For now these are the important commands you need to know. Some of them take parameters, but we do not really care about that. You only need to remember that write takes a parameter of a string you want to write to the file.
