Ruby On Rails Interview Questions and Answers

Ques. What is the convention using ‘!’ at the end of method name?
Ans.

The ! indicates that the method is about to change the object itself.

Here’s an example:

foo = "A TEST STRING"  # a string called foo

foo.downcase!     # modifies foo permanently
a test string

puts foo          # prints modified foo
a test string

Similarly if you did not want the object to be changed you could have something simple like:

foo2 = "A 2nd Test String"  # a string called foo 

foo2.downcase     # modifies foo temporarily
a 2nd test string 

puts foo2 nbsp;    # prints original foo 
A 2nd Test String
