The Headington Shark

“The shark was to express someone feeling totally impotent and ripping a hole in their roof out of a sense of impotence and anger and desperation…. It is saying something about CND, nuclear power, Chernobyl and Nagasaki.”

Tip Reading Object Details in the Rails Console

By default, the Rails console (irb) echoes an #inspect dump of the result of every expression you type. This is usually what you want. But sometimes if you’re trying to look at a complex object, it can get hard to read. For those times, try:

>> puts the_object.to_yaml

The #to_yaml call gives you a readable representation of the object and “puts” returns nil, which means the console will only echo “nil” and not the object’s contents.
