Control Flow in Ruby


Sometimes you want to use control flow to check if something is false, rather than if it's true. You could reverse your if/else, but Ruby will do you one better: it will let you use an unless statement.

Let's say you don't want to eat unless you're hungry. That is, while you're not hungry, you write programs, but if you are hungry, you eat. You might write that program in Ruby like this:

unless hungry
  # Write some sweet programs
  # Have some noms
