I decided to make FizzBuzz into something that reads (nominally) like English … because I’m easily amused.
fizz_or_buzz = (1..100)
fizzbuzz = fizz_or_buzz.map do |i|
not_fizzy = (i % 3 != 0)
not_buzzy = (i % 5 != 0)
no_fizz_no_buzz = i.to_s
when_fizzy = (i % 3)
when_buzzy = (i % 5)
if not_fizzy && not_buzzy
fizziness = [no_fizz_no_buzz]
fizziness = [ ["Fizz"][when_fizzy], ["Buzz"][when_buzzy] ]
There’s a fun little trick in the else clause, taking advantage of ruby’s handling of nil elements in a 2 element array. It’s a *really bad* coding practice, but fun to play with. You can see an explanation of the nil handling here.
