“What’s the best way to test that an array contains another array?”

A custom matcher using array - other_array was suggested.


The team that was having problems with Prototype response codes found a partial solution.

They sometimes call abort() on the request which triggers the callbacks with a 0 response code. They found that if they set transport.onreadystatechange = function() {}; before calling abort() they could skip the callbacks, and manually call whatever clean-up they needed. That Prototype interprets 0 as a success still sounds strange.

  1. Not sure I understand the “Help” question. Is assert a1.include?(a2) good enough?

    $ irb
    irb(main):001:0> a = [ [1], [2,3], [4,5,6]]
    => [[1], [2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]
    irb(main):002:0> a.include?([2,3])
    => true
    irb(main):003:0> a.include?([1,2,3])
    => false


  2. Josh Susser says:

    The problem was how to test if an array includes the contents of another array, as opposed to including the other array object itself. Splatting the other array works fine:

    it “includes related tags”
    %w.should include(*article.tags)
