Defined in:
lib/rubocop/cop/performance/redundant_match.rb

Overview

This cop identifies the use of `Regexp#match` or `String#match`, which returns `#<MatchData>`/`nil`. The return value of `=~` is an integral index/`nil` and is more performant.

Examples:

# bad
do_something if str.match(/regex/)
while regex.match('str')
  do_something
end

# good
method(str =~ /regex/)
return value unless regex =~ 'str'
