Difference between && and and in Ruby

Difference between && and and in Ruby?


   Difference between && and and in ruby is mainly the Precedence of these operators. ‘and’ and ‘&&’ both have different precedence. This tutorial will help understanding with the help of examples.
Use of ‘&&’

The ‘&&' operator is used as "Logical AND” on the boolean/ non boolean variable in Ruby.
Example,
Suppose we have variable a as,

a = true

And variable b as,

b = false

Then, logical AND will give result as,

c = a && b
puts "C is #{c}"
=> C is false

Use of ‘and’

The 'and' operator is also used as "Logical AND” on the boolean/ non boolean variable in Ruby.
But, ‘and’ has lower precedence than ‘&&’
This will also give same results for example shown for ‘&&’

a = true
b = false
c = a and b
puts "C is #{c}"
=> C is false

Difference

Suppose, we have a, b and c variables as given below,

a = true
b = false
c = true

Use of && - Use of and

d = a && b && c
puts "D is #{d}"
=> false
e = a and b and c
puts "E is #{e}"
=> true

Points to be noted:

    && has more precedence than =, thus evaluated result is assigned to d
    and has less precedence than =, thus value of a is directly assigned to e which gets printed

Get the Current url in ruby on rails

request.refererrequest.fullpathrequest.fullpath.split("?")[0]request.referer or request.env['HTTP_REFERER'] your controller to get the referer url. 

--------------------
request.original_url
request.url
request.host_with_port
<link rel="canonical" href="<%= request.url %>" />
<%=request.path%>
How can I get the current absolute URL in my Ruby on Rails view?
The request.request_uri only returns the relative URL.
request.env['REQUEST_URI']

 For Rails 3.2 or Rails 4 you should use request.original_url to get the current URL. More detail.

For Rails 3: You want "#{request.protocol}#{request.host_with_port}#{request.fullpath}", since request.url is now deprecated.

For Rails 2: You want request.url instead of request.request_uri. This combines the protocol (usually http://) with the host, and request_uri to give you the full address
