Split string by whitespace in Ruby
August 22, 2022 ‐ 1 min read
To split a string in Ruby on a whitespace character we can use the
#split method. Which may take a pattern to split on as the first parameter, but splits the string on whitespace by default if no parameter is given.
puts "Foo Bar".split #=> ["Foo", "Bar"]
The result of this operation is an array containing the parts that were delimited by a whitespace character.
