v3.2.8 - Show latest stable - 2 notes - Class: Hash
slice(*keys) public

Slice a hash to include only the given keys. This is useful for limiting an options hash to valid keys before passing to a method:

def search(criteria = {})
  assert_valid_keys(:mass, :velocity, :time)

search(options.slice(:mass, :velocity, :time))

If you have an array of keys you want to limit to, you should splat them:

valid_keys = [:mass, :velocity, :time]

everything is ok

Olefine, I’m not sure here is a good place for such questions (better use stackoverflow for example), but answer for your question is that Rails provide slice (and many other methods) not only for Hash class but for HashWithIndifferentAccess too such as for any other superclass of Hash, so they use

hash = self.class.new

for a reason. {} is a literal only for Hash.

unuseful code

Why it use?

hash = self.class.new

Instead it, we may use

hash = {}
