#discard(k = nil) ⇒ Object

Marks the entire flash or a single flash entry to be discarded by the end of the current action:

flash.discard              # discard the entire flash at the end of the current action
flash.discard(:warning)    # discard only the "warning" entry at the end of the current action

def discard(k = nil)
  use(k)
end

#keep(k = nil) ⇒ Object

Keeps either the entire current flash or a specific flash entry available for the next action:

flash.keep            # keeps the entire flash
flash.keep(:notice)   # keeps only the "notice" entry, the rest of the flash is discarded

def notice=(message)
  self[:notice] = message
end

#nowObject

Sets a flash that will not be available to the next action, only to the current.

flash.now[:message] = "Hello current action"

This method enables you to use the flash as a central messaging system in your app. When you need to pass an object to the next action, you use the standard flash assign ([]=). When you need to pass an object to the current action, you use now, and your object will vanish when the current action is done.

Entries set via now are accessed the same way as standard entries: flash['my-key'].

#sweepObject

Mark for removal entries that were kept, and delete unkept ones.

This method is called automatically by filters, so you generally don't need to care about it.
