In this section, we will learn what the `each` method is and how to use it in Ruby.
What is Array each Method in Ruby?
The Array each method, is a type of method that takes a block and sends the elements of the array to that block. So basically the block will be run per each element of the array and so we can run any sort of instructions on the elements within the body of the block.
Array each Method Syntax:
array.each do |element| #instructions… end
Array each Method Parameters
We pass a block to the `each` method and that will be called per each element of the array.
Array each Method return Value
The method will return a reference to the array itself.
Example: using Array each method in Ruby
arr = ["One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six"] arr.each do |element| puts element end
One Two Three Four Five Six
