Tip Enumerable#partition

“partition” is an infrequently-used but handy method from Ruby’s Enumerable module. If you want to divide an Enumerable thing into two groups based on a set of criteria:

  ppl = %w(Sam Patrick Marcel Chad)
  short_names, long_names = ppl.partition{|p| 
    p.length <= 4

  1. [[“Sam”, “Chad”], [“Patrick”, “Marcel”]]

Those that match criteria in the block are filtered into the first element of the result, while those that don’t match are filtered into the second.
