ruby loop refactor
I have a loop that looks like this
def slow_loop(array) array.each_with_index do |item, i| next_item = array[i+1] if next_item && item.attribute == next_item.attribute do_something_with(next_item) end end end
aside from changing the way do_something_with is called, how can i make this perform better?
Since it appears that this is an 'O(n)' operation, there is apparently no performance to be gained here, so the answer i chose is one that uses a ruby method that already encapsulates this operation. thanks for your help everybody
