class Prism::RangeNode

Represents the use of the ‘..` or `…` operators.

1..2
^^^^

c if a =~ /left/ ... b =~ /right/
     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Attributes

flags[R]

protected attr_reader flags: Integer

left[R]

The left-hand side of the range, if present. It can be either ‘nil` or any [non-void expression](github.com/ruby/prism/blob/main/docs/parsing_rules.md#non-void-expression).

1...
^

hello...goodbye
^^^^^
right[R]

The right-hand side of the range, if present. It can be either ‘nil` or any [non-void expression](github.com/ruby/prism/blob/main/docs/parsing_rules.md#non-void-expression).

..5
  ^

1...foo
    ^^^

If neither right-hand or left-hand side was included, this will be a MissingNode.

Similar to type, this method returns a symbol that you can use for splitting on the type of the node without having to do a long === chain. Note that like type, it will still be slower than using == for a single class, but should be faster in a case statement or an array comparison.

Public Instance Methods

===(other) click to toggle source

Implements case-equality for the node. This is effectively == but without comparing the value of locations. Locations are checked only for presence.

# File lib/prism/node.rb, line 15487
def ===(other)
  other.is_a?(RangeNode) &&
    (flags === other.flags) &&
    (left === other.left) &&
    (right === other.right) &&
    (operator_loc.nil? == other.operator_loc.nil?)

Sometimes you want to check an instance of a node against a list of classes to see what kind of behavior to perform. Usually this is done by calling ‘[cls1, cls2].include?(node.class)` or putting the node into a case statement and doing `case node; when cls1; when cls2; end`. Both of these approaches are relatively slow because of the constant lookups, method calls, and/or array allocations.

Instead, you can call type, which will return to you a symbol that you can use for comparison. This is faster than the other approaches because it uses a single integer comparison, but also because if you’re on CRuby you can take advantage of the fact that case statements with all symbol keys will use a jump table.
