block_scanf(fstr) click to toggle source

Scans the current string until the match is exhausted yielding each match as it is encountered in the string. A block is not necessary as the results will simply be aggregated into the final array.

"123 456".block_scanf("%d")
# => [123, 456]

If a block is given, the value from that is returned from the yield is added to an output array.

"123 456".block_scanf("%d) do |digit,| # the ',' unpacks the Array
  digit + 100
end
# => [223, 556]

See Scanf for details on creating a format string.

You will need to require 'scanf' to use #block_scanf

  fs = Scanf::FormatString.new(fstr)

scanf(fstr) click to toggle source

Scans the current string. If a block is given, it functions exactly like block_scanf.

arr = "123 456".scanf("%d%d")
# => [123, 456]

require 'pp'

"this 123 read that 456 other".scanf("%s%d%s") {|m| pp m}

# ["this", 123, "read"]
# ["that", 456, "other"]
# => [["this", 123, "read"], ["that", 456, "other"]]
