use of << vs < in Ruby

June 19, 2014

Sometimes I confuse the difference between << and < in ruby and when to use them.

<< is used to push an item into an array such as

existing_array << new_item_into_array

while < is used to create a subclass of a class

class NewSubclass < OriginalClass

you can see this in rails when you create a new controller or model
