Bug #6524

missing "#=>" in example block in Regexp class documentation

Added by nathanst (Nathan Stratton Treadway) over 8 years ago. Updated over 8 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:


In the Regexp class documentation, "Performance" section, the code block that starts out "# Match a string of 29 as against a pattern of 29 optional" seems to be the only block of sample code on the page which would return a value but that doesn't include a "#=>" in the sample block to show what is returned.

(Also, it might be a little easier for readers to concentrate on the point of the discussion here if that example was as close as possible to the following one, rather having one use use =~ while the other uses .match() ....)
