    Hi all,

    I have an array of [1,2,''] I want change it to [1,2]. I check the
    document about Array but I cant't find a way to remove the empty
    element. Any comments?

    Thanks,

    Li

    You should really get hold of your copy of the Pickaxe.

  3. It's "[1, 2, <empty-string>]"? If so, then it's not an empty element.
    If you have [1, 2, nil] then you can just use Array#compact or
    Array#compact!. Otherwise, look at #delete_if.
