Instance Method Summary collapse

#months ⇒ Object
(also: #month)
Enables the use of time calculations and declarations, like 45.minutes + 2.hours + 4.years.

#multiple_of?(number) ⇒ Boolean
Check whether the integer is evenly divisible by the argument.

#ordinalize ⇒ Object
Ordinalize turns a number into an ordinal string used to denote the position in an ordered sequence such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.
 #years ⇒ Object (also: #year)
Instance Method Details
#months ⇒ Object Also known as: month
Enables the use of time calculations and declarations, like 45.minutes + 2.hours + 4.years.
These methods use Time#advance for precise date calculations when using from_now, ago, etc. as well as adding or subtracting their results from a Time object. For example:
# equivalent to Time.now.advance(:months => 1)
1.month.from_now
# equivalent to Time.now.advance(:years => 2)
2.years.from_now
# equivalent to Time.now.advance(:months => 4, :years => 5)
(4.months + 5.years).from_now
While these methods provide precise calculation when used as in the examples above, care should be taken to note that this is not true if the result of ‘months’, ‘years’, etc is converted before use:
# equivalent to 30.days.to_i.from_now
1.month.to_i.from_now
# equivalent to 365.25.days.to_f.from_now
1.year.to_f.from_now
In such cases, Ruby’s core Date and Time should be used for precision date and time arithmetic

#multiple_of?(number) ⇒ Boolean
Check whether the integer is evenly divisible by the argument.
0.multiple_of?(0) #=> true
6.multiple_of?(5) #=> false
10.multiple_of?(2) #=> true

#ordinalize ⇒ Object
Ordinalize turns a number into an ordinal string used to denote the position in an ordered sequence such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.
1.ordinalize # => "1st"
2.ordinalize # => "2nd"

1003.ordinalize # => "1003rd"
11.ordinalize # => "11th"
