#key?(key) ⇒ Boolean Also known as: include?, has_key?, member?

Checks the hash for a key matching the argument passed in:

hash = HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash["key"] = "value"
hash.key? :key  # => true
hash.key? "key" # => true

#merge(hash) ⇒ Object

Merges the instantized and the specified hashes together, giving precedence to the values from the second hash Does not overwrite the existing hash.

#reverse_merge(other_hash) ⇒ Object

Performs the opposite of merge, with the keys and values from the first hash taking precedence over the second. This overloaded definition prevents returning a regular hash, if reverse_merge is called on a HashWithDifferentAccess.

#update(other_hash) ⇒ Object Also known as: merge!

Updates the instantized hash with values from the second:

hash_1 = HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash_1[:key] = "value"

hash_2 = HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash_2[:key] = "New Value!"

hash_1.update(hash_2) # => {"key"=>"New Value!"}

end

#values_at(*indices) ⇒ Object

Returns an array of the values at the specified indices:

hash = HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash[:a] = "x"
hash[:b] = "y"
hash.values_at("a", "b") # => ["x", "y"]
