Overview

A Struct is a convenient way to bundle a number of attributes together, using accessor methods, without having to write an explicit class.

The Struct class generates new subclasses that hold a set of members and their values. For each member a reader and writer method is created similar to Module#attr_accessor.

Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address) do
  def greeting
    "Hello #{name}!"
  end
end

dave = Customer.new("Dave", "123 Main")
dave.name     #=> "Dave"
dave.greeting #=> "Hello Dave!"

See Struct::new for further examples of creating struct subclasses and instances.

In the method descriptions that follow, a “member” parameter refers to a struct member which is either a quoted string ("name") or a Symbol (:name).

Class Method Details

.new([class_name][, member_name]) ⇒ StructClass .new([class_name][, member_name], keyword_init: true) ⇒ StructClass .new([class_name][, member_name]) {|StructClass| ... } ⇒ StructClass .new(value, ...) ⇒ Object .[](value, ...) ⇒ Object

The first two forms are used to create a new Struct subclass class_name that can contain a value for each member_name. This subclass can be used to create instances of the structure like any other Class.

If the class_name is omitted an anonymous structure class will be created. Otherwise, the name of this struct will appear as a constant in class Struct, so it must be unique for all Structs in the system and must start with a capital letter. Assigning a structure class to a constant also gives the class the name of the constant.

# Create a structure with a name under Struct
Struct.new("Customer", :name, :address)#=> Struct::Customer

Struct::Customer.new("Dave", "123 Main")#=> #<struct Struct::Customer name="Dave", address="123 Main">


# Create a structure named by its constant
Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address)#=> Customer

Customer.new("Dave", "123 Main")#=> #<struct Customer name="Dave", address="123 Main">

If the optional keyword_init keyword argument is set to true, .new takes keyword arguments instead of normal arguments.

Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address, keyword_init: true)
Customer.new(name: "Dave", address: "123 Main")#=> #<struct Customer name="Dave", address="123 Main">

If a block is given it will be evaluated in the context of StructClass, passing the created class as a parameter:

Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address) do
  def greeting
    "Hello #{name}!"
  end
end
Customer.new("Dave", "123 Main").greeting  #=> "Hello Dave!"

This is the recommended way to customize a struct. Subclassing an anonymous struct creates an extra anonymous class that will never be used.

The last two forms create a new instance of a struct subclass. The number of value parameters must be less than or equal to the number of attributes defined for the structure. Unset parameters default to nil. Passing more parameters than number of attributes will raise an ArgumentError.

Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address)
Customer.new("Dave", "123 Main")#=> #<struct Customer name="Dave", address="123 Main">

Customer["Dave"]#=> #<struct Customer name="Dave", address=nil>

#membersArray

Returns the struct members as an array of symbols:

Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address, :zip)
joe = Customer.new("Joe Smith", "123 Maple, Anytown NC", 12345)
joe.members   #=> [:name, :address, :zip]

{

}

#select {|obj| ... } ⇒ Array #selectObject #filter {|obj| ... } ⇒ Array #filterObject

Yields each member value from the struct to the block and returns an Array containing the member values from the struct for which the given block returns a true value (equivalent to Enumerable#select).

Lots = Struct.new(:a, :b, :c, :d, :e, :f)
l = Lots.new(11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66)
l.select {|v| v.even? }   #=> [22, 44, 66]

Struct#filter is an alias for Struct#select.

Overloads:

  • #select {|obj| ... } ⇒ Array

    Yields:

    • (obj)

    Returns:

  • #filter {|obj| ... } ⇒ Array

    Yields:

    • (obj)

    Returns:

#to_hHash #to_h {|name, value| ... } ⇒ Hash

Returns a Hash containing the names and values for the struct's members.

If a block is given, the results of the block on each pair of the receiver will be used as pairs.

Customer = Struct.new(:name, :address, :zip)
joe = Customer.new("Joe Smith", "123 Maple, Anytown NC", 12345)
joe.to_h[:address]   #=> "123 Maple, Anytown NC"

Overloads:

  • #to_hHash

    Returns:
