FalseClass

The global value false is the only instance of class FalseClass and represents a logically false value in boolean expressions. The class provides operators allowing false to participate correctly in logical expressions.

Public Instance Methods

false & obj → false click to toggle source
nil & obj → false

And—Returns false. obj is always evaluated as it is the argument to a method call—there is no short-circuit evaluation in this case.

 
               static VALUE
false_and(VALUE obj, VALUE obj2)
{
    return Qfalse;
}
            
obj === other → true or false click to toggle source

Case Equality – For class Object, effectively the same as calling #==, but typically overridden by descendants to provide meaningful semantics in case statements.

 
               VALUE
rb_equal(VALUE obj1, VALUE obj2)
{
    VALUE result;

    if (obj1 == obj2) return Qtrue;
    result = rb_equal_opt(obj1, obj2);
    if (result == Qundef) {
        result = rb_funcall(obj1, id_eq, 1, obj2);
    }
    if (RTEST(result)) return Qtrue;
    return Qfalse;
}
            
false ^ obj → true or false click to toggle source
nil ^ obj → true or false

Exclusive Or—If obj is nil or false, returns false; otherwise, returns true.

 
               static VALUE
false_xor(VALUE obj, VALUE obj2)
{
    return RTEST(obj2)?Qtrue:Qfalse;
}
            
inspect() click to toggle source
Alias for: to_s
to_s → "false" click to toggle source

               static VALUE
false_to_s(VALUE obj)
{
    return rb_usascii_str_new2("false");
}
            
Also aliased as: inspect
false | obj → true or false click to toggle source
nil | obj → true or false

Or—Returns false if obj is nil or false; true otherwise.

 
               static VALUE
false_or(VALUE obj, VALUE obj2)
{
    return RTEST(obj2)?Qtrue:Qfalse;
}
