123.5.to_s #=> "123.5" String(123.5) #=> "123.5" Usually, String() will just call #to_s. Methods Kernel#sprintf and String#% behave similar to C: sprintf("%s", 123.5) #=> "123.5" "%s" % 123.5 #=> "123.5" "%d&quot...
"123.50".to_i #=> 123 Integer("123.50") #=> 123 A string will take the value of any integer at its start, but will not take integers from anywhere else: "123-foo".to_i # => 123 "foo-123".to_i # => 0 However, there is a difference when ...
"123.50".to_f #=> 123.5 Float("123.50") #=> 123.5 However, there is a difference when the string is not a valid Float: "something".to_f #=> 0.0 Float("something") # ArgumentError: invalid value for Float(): "something"
1/2 #=> 0 Since we are dividing two integers, the result is an integer. To solve this problem, we need to cast at least one of those to Float: 1.0 / 2 #=> 0.5 1.to_f / 2 #=> 0.5 1 / Float(2) #=> 0.5 Alternatively, fdiv may be used to return the floating point result of di...
