lines(*args) public

Returns an array of lines in str split using the supplied record separator ($/ by default). This is a shorthand for str.each_line(separator, getline_args).to_a.

See IO.readlines for details about getline_args.

"hello\nworld\n".lines              #=> ["hello\n", "world\n"]
"hello  world".lines(' ')           #=> ["hello ", " ", "world"]
"hello\nworld\n".lines(chomp: true) #=> ["hello", "world"]

If a block is given, which is a deprecated form, works the same as each_line.
