Difference between && and and in Ruby

Difference between && and and in Ruby?


   Difference between && and and in ruby is mainly the Precedence of these operators. ‘and’ and ‘&&’ both have different precedence. This tutorial will help understanding with the help of examples.
Use of ‘&&’

The ‘&&' operator is used as "Logical AND” on the boolean/ non boolean variable in Ruby.
Example,
Suppose we have variable a as,

a = true

And variable b as,

b = false

Then, logical AND will give result as,

c = a && b
puts "C is #{c}"
=> C is false

Use of ‘and’

The 'and' operator is also used as "Logical AND” on the boolean/ non boolean variable in Ruby.
But, ‘and’ has lower precedence than ‘&&’
This will also give same results for example shown for ‘&&’

a = true
b = false
c = a and b
puts "C is #{c}"
=> C is false

Difference

Suppose, we have a, b and c variables as given below,

a = true
b = false
c = true

Use of && - Use of and

d = a && b && c
puts "D is #{d}"
=> false
e = a and b and c
puts "E is #{e}"
=> true

Points to be noted:

    && has more precedence than =, thus evaluated result is assigned to d
    and has less precedence than =, thus value of a is directly assigned to e which gets printed

Get user accessing ip address in rails?

Get user accessing ip address rails?

request.ip ->returns the ip, whether is is a local proxy ip (localhost address) or not.
*request.remote_ip -> is smarter and gets the ip address of the client outside of local proxies.
3)If you are using apache in front of a mongrel, then remote_ip will return the source address of the request, which in this case will be local host because the Apache web server is making the request, so instead put this in your controller:

@remote_ip = request.env["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"]
