Bug #9882

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) over 7 years ago

I have the following code. In a nutshell i am slicing a string to pull out strings to use as keys in a hash. However when running the following code, I am getting odd results. 

 ~~~ruby 
 context = "Marriott International World’s Most ADMIRED Lodging Company by FORTUNE for 14th yr. via @FortuneMagazine http://cnnmon.ie/1kcFZSQ" 
 slice_url = context.slice(105,24) 
 str = "http://cnnmon.ie/1kcFZSQ" 
 slice_url == str 
 redirects = {"http://cnnmon.ie/1kcFZSQ"=>"http://money.cnn.com/2014/02/06/leadership/marriott-hotels.pr.fortune"} 
 redirects.key?(slice_url) 
 redirects.key?(str) 
 ~~~ 

 The `slice_url` slice_url and `str` str are equal, however when I look for the key in redirects with `slice_url` slice_url I get a `nil`, nil, but when setting the string variable manually, I get a match and value.    I am not sure if this is an issue with the value returned by the string slice method or an issue with the hash.
