Unicode Whitespace Shenigans in Ruby

It seems that sometimes.. the split is not enough! (Yes, Bond theme - 100% cheese.) If you've got a string that just won't split, there might literally be more to it than meets the eye. I use this as a springboard to launch into some Ruby whitespace shenanigans! Enjoy.


Ah yes, the ol' non-breaking space. Great little write up. I learned about non-breaking spaces the hard way when moving to 1.9. They're very common in text imported from Excel or from web scrapers.bradland - November 26, 2012 17:07
