Strings in Ruby are specified the same way as they are in Python. A string is enclosed by either single or double quotes.
puts "my string"
Regular expressions are defined in the Regexp class. The
=~ operator can be used to search a regular expression in a string. The operator matches the regex against the string, and returns the character index of the starting character in the regular expression.
pattern = /orange/ string = "I eat lots of oranges" puts pattern =~ string >>14
