Regexp question (newbie)

After playing a little bit with Ruby 3 years ago, I am trying to learn
it now.
Problem:

a = [“aaa”,“abb”,“bbb”,“acc”,“bcc”,“ccc”]

I want a regular expression which would extract something like [“acc”,
“ccc”] from a

I want something like

irb(main):023:0> for b in a
irb(main):024:1> b.scan("#{(a||c)}cc") && print b
irb(main):025:1> end

but I am not sure how to approach it.

Regars.

Hello –

After playing a little bit with Ruby 3 years ago, I am trying to learn
it now.
Problem:

a = [“aaa”,“abb”,“bbb”,“acc”,“bcc”,“ccc”]

I want a regular expression which would extract something like [“acc”,
“ccc”] from a

I want something like

irb(main):023:0> for b in a
irb(main):024:1> b.scan("#{(a||c)}cc") && print b
irb(main):025:1> end

but I am not sure how to approach it.

I would use #select, which filters based on a condition contained
in a code block:

a = [“aaa”,“abb”,“bbb”,“acc”,“bcc”,“ccc”]
puts a.select {|e| /(a|c)cc/.match(e)}

=>
acc
ccc

I think I’d use Enumerable#grep in this case:

irb(main):001:0> a = [“aaa”,“abb”,“bbb”,“acc”,“bcc”,“ccc”]
[“aaa”, “abb”, “bbb”, “acc”, “bcc”, “ccc”]
irb(main):002:0> a.grep /(a|c)cc/
[“acc”, “ccc”]

I always forget that one :slight_smile:
