Public Instance Methods

===(tuple) Show source

Alias for match.

# File lib/rinda/rinda.rb, line 169
def ===(tuple)
  match(tuple)
end
match(tuple) Show source

Matches this template against tuple. The tuple must be the same size as the template. An element with a nil value in a template acts as a wildcard, matching any value in the corresponding position in the tuple. Elements of the template match the tuple if the are #== or ===.

Template.new([:foo, 5]).match   Tuple.new([:foo, 5]) # => true
Template.new([:foo, nil]).match Tuple.new([:foo, 5]) # => true
Template.new([String]).match    Tuple.new(['hello']) # => true

Template.new([:foo]).match      Tuple.new([:foo, 5]) # => false
Template.new([:foo, 6]).match   Tuple.new([:foo, 5]) # => false
Template.new([:foo, nil]).match Tuple.new([:foo])    # => false
Template.new([:foo, 6]).match   Tuple.new([:foo])    # => false
# File lib/rinda/rinda.rb, line 148
